In this stunning journey of language and ancestry, nightmare and vision, the author undertakes a search for his roots. Moving seamlessly between past and present, he recalls his travels by train through the Old World of his Polish/Russian emigrant parents. He retraces the steps of the generations before him, bringing to life, as he moves among the mass graves and dead cities, the vivid and thriving Jewish communities of the 1920s and 1930s. Stepping into the "still life" of a synagogue that is shattered and empty, or preserved as a museum, equally desolate, estranged for its purpose. In doing so, he comes to understand the inner lives of those who survived, who escaped the hatred of 1930s Europe only to lose, without warning, every trace of their family and former lives.
