“In a time when desperate people seized with both hands the chance for freedom, refugees from more than seventy nations gathered beneath the Southern Cross to forge a new national identify.  They came from all over war-torn Europe to the mountains of Australia to help realise one man’s dream: the mighty Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme.  One of the greatest engineering feats of the 20th Century, the Snowy Scheme was built with pride from the seat and blood of displaced people.
One was ‘Lucky’, a German Jew seeking refuge in Australia after losing his family to the Nazis.  Another was Pietro, a young Italian immigrant with no memory of his past, in search of more than a new life.  And then there was the woman form Israel, whose past was so steeped in horror that, no matter how far she ran, she could never escape the nightmare of Auschwitz or the massacre of Deir Yassin.  People of all races and creeds tunnelled through a mountain range to turn the course of a majestic river, trying to put to rest ghosts from the inferno of history: buried memories, unimaginable pain and deadly secrets.”
