A woman who lived in Germany during World War II wanted to
cross the German/Swiss border in order to escape Nazi pursuers.
The bridge which she is to cross is a half mile across, over a large canyon.
Every three minutes a guard comes out of his bunker and checks if
anyone is on the bridge. If a person is caught trying to escape German
side to the Swiss side they are shot. If caught crossing the other
direction without papers they are sent back. She knows that it takes
at least five minutes to cross the bridge, in which time the guard will
see her crossing and shoot her.
How does she get across?
