Summary"As ten-year-old Pinchas is deported from the Warsaw ghetto to the killing site of Majdanek and then to concentration camps, he shuts himself off to the terrors surrounding him and tries his best not to be noticed, to become almost invisible. But after liberation, his photographic memory won’t let his past fade away, and Pinchas struggles to deal with nightmares and flashbacks while trying to raise a family and heal his emotional scars." —Publisher
