Among the group is eighteen year old Anna Emmerich the daughter of Prussian aristocrats There is her lover Callum Finella a twenty year old Scottish prisoner of war who was brought from the stalag to her family s farm as forced labor And there is a twenty six year old Wehrmacht corporal who the pair know as Manfred who is in reality Uri Singer a Jew from Germany who managed to escape a train bound for Auschwitz .
