The Boy at the Top of the Mountain
Fact: all orphans long for a home. But what if the home is with Hitler, high in his mountain retreat? A chilling tale of horror seen from the inside. Prepare to ask: ‘What would I have done?’ Pierrot is an orphan – just a kid who needs a home. He knows nothing of the Nazis. Why would he? Then he is sent to live with an aunt in a grand house on top of a mountain. So far so good. Or not. Because this is no ordinary time. The Second World War is looming. And this is no ordinary house. It is the Berghof – Adolf Hitler’s home. As Pierrot is taken under Hitler’s wing, terrible things start to happen. There’s no safe side of the barbed wire to be on.
