The rise of Hitler and his barbaric racial cleansing policies has intensified the hatred and prejudice to a frightening new level. When Ingrid is identified as an ”undesirable” she is sent to Hadamar – an institution the locals call “The House of Shudders”. There she discovers how far the Nazis will go to rid the Reich from those considered unworthy of living. Desperate to survive and protect others around her, Ingrid seeks the help of a charming Aryan doctor. Can he be her protector? Or will Johan, a wounded German soldier she is starting to have feelings for be her only source of hope? Inspired by true events, this is the powerful story of a young woman’s quest to overcome hatred and survive.
