A breathtaking,haunting story,one of the most intense and revealing about something which is indescribable:the horrifying experience of what it meant to be a Jewish child in the 40'. And not even in the well known Nazis German regime, but nothing less than France and the beautiful Paris, the city of Enlightenment and Reason,of the gaiety and pleasures of life, the city loved by the whole world. There the horror happened, and it was buried under and with the ashes! Finally the truth is coming out. France is reexamining her conscience and her history.
In this confession and revision, better than anything is the power of literature, of the poetic word; better than the cold report of a chronicle, than a book of history.
This is an individual story that gives light on History.
The literary writer, the poetic word reaches where nothing and nobody else can reach: the deepest corner of the human heart and emotions, the most hidden side of the human mind, the soul, the essence of what is tragic. It gives the most revealing voice to human pain, going beyond the surface and aridity of facts.
Yet the facts are there in this compelling story in which you'll be completely engrossed till the end.
