Publisher's Description

Distinguished psychotherapist and survivor Elhanan Rosenbaum is losing his memory to an incurable disease. Never having spoken of the war years before, he resolves to tell his son about his past—the heroic parts as well as the parts that fill him with shame—before it is too late.

Elhanan's story compels his son to go to the Romanian village where the crime that continues to haunt his father was committed. There he encounters the improbable wisdom of a gravedigger who leads him to the grave of his grandfather and to the truths that bind one generation to another.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

"A book of shattering force that offers a message of urgency to a world under the spell of trivia and the tyranny of amnesia."—Chicago Tribune Book World

"A masterful storyteller . . . Wiesel creates a kaleidoscope of images that raise tantalizing questions."
—The Boston Globe

"From the abyss of the death camps he has come as a messenger to mankind—not with a message of hate and revenge, but with one of brotherhood and atonement."
—From the Citation for the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize
 
"Wiesel uses words to craft literary monuments, works that stand as acts of remembrance and as meditations on the nature of remembrance itself."
—San Francisco Chronicle
 
"Unquestionably, Wiesel is one of the most admirable, indeed indispensable, human beings now writing."
—The Washington Post
 
"Not since Albert Camus has there been such an eloquent spokesman for man."
—The New York Review of Books
