When Wendy starts to volunteer at Lebensborn, she meets Johanna, a girl who is fighting for her religion. Wendy also meets a young Polish boy named Dobry, but his German name is Hunfrid. At Lebensborn, Johanna teaches Wendy how to speak German.

Wendy, Barret, and Watcher take off on their escape to freedom. Barret was not originally going to go on this journey, but he decided it would be best for him. Opa set up everything. At every stop there would be someone waiting for them. Then that person would take them to the next stop.

Wendy could leave and she had to make the right choice. Should Wendy leave Watcher here with Barret or should she take Watcher with her. She finally decided it would be best if Watcher stayed with Barret.
