In 1938 Annelies Magen, 18 years old and from a Jewish family in Dresden, was accused of being a spy by the German authorities. Her parents sent her to England to escape the threat of a 'labour camp', hoping to join her later. She would never see them again. In this combined family history and memoir, Annelies's son David Godwin former chaplain of Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, traces the fate of the Magen family in wartime Germany, and reflects on his own life as a Christian with Jewish roots.
