Kate Bosse-Griffiths succeeded in fleeing from Germany to the Britain in 1937. She fell in love, married, began writing in Wales and established Cylch Cadwgan whilst the Nazis made life in Germany and Europe hell on Earth. Her family was persecuted. A few tried to become a part of the system, others struggled in spite of the system, and some self-sacrifed in opposition of the system.
The story would have been lost forever if it wasn't for the thousand and more pages that have been kept by the family; letters, diaries and documents. They give an account of the attacks during Kristallnacht (The Night of Broken Glass), life under the insane regime, details of prison camps, fleeing to Shanghai, suicide, imprisonment and killing. Here is a story of love and hatred, protection and persecution, yearning and terror during the most destructive period in European history.
A paperback version is also available.

"For Kate's descendants in Wales, the Holocaust is not a terrible event visited on others, but a catastrophe to which the Welsh-language community is also witness... In this book, Kate Bosse becomes the Welsh Anne Frank – a figure of huge moral and symbolic significance." - Simon Brooks, Planet
