This is the true story of an undying love that is set against the backdrop of one of the most monstrous and bloody periods mankind has ever known. The basic story is a familiar one: a young couple meet, they fall in love and then, they marry. There are however remarkable complications along every stop of this all too recognizable journey. Consider that the young man, Misha, has a dark and dangerous past; that the couple met while imprisoned in a Nazi ghetto in Poland, and when they marry, the girl, Liza, is only sixteen and an orphan. Then in 1943, only one year after their marriage, the Nazis close the ghetto; execute most of its inhabitants and send the survivors to Auschwitz. As the surviving men and women are being violently separated, they are told they will never be reunited. While surrounded by couples exchanging mournful and final farewells, Misha makes an impossible promise not only to survive whatever horror lay ahead, but after the war, to search for and find Liza. Liza responds with an impossible promise of her own: she will be waiting. Although neither sees the other for the next two years, or even knows if their partner is still alive, the power of their love and commitment sustain them, and in the end, each is able to keep their impossible promise. So this is their fantastic story, and what makes it even more fantastic is that – it actually happened.
