#1 New York Times bestseller and winner of the Carnegie Medal

A superlative novel . . . masterfully crafted.--The Wall Street Journal

Based on the forgotten tragedy that was six times deadlier than the Titanic.--Time

Winter 1945. WWII. Four refugees. Four stories.

Each one born of a different homeland; each one hunted, and haunted, by tragedy, lies, war. As thousands desperately flock to the coast in the midst of a Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom. But not all promises can be kept . . .

This paperback edition includes book club questions and exclusive interviews with Wilhelm Gustloff survivors and experts.
