      Down the Danube: What would a something make of a river cruise? I also had a chance to reboot by simply lying low in one of the ship's many cosy nooks and crannies with a good book.   Just as Europe’s gates are about to shut down, Hanne and 1, other youths sail away on the Danube River. On board the ship, under appalling living conditions, Hanne falls in love with Inge, a young German Jewish girl. Soon their love intensifies, and with it, the desire to build a new life together in the Land of Israel.
