Synopsis: From Prologue: April in Israel, a clear, calm spring morning: streets basking in the warm rays of the sun, the aroma of citrus flowers, heavy traffic. I must get to work. Sitting with my wife and my daughter in the car, I grow irate as the trip drags on. Then a siren splits the air. Everything, cars, trucks busses, comes to a stop. Drivers and passengers step into the street, where they stand in taut silence. More distant sirens echo. Their wail blankets the entire country. They augur the beginning of Holocaust Day: a minute of silence for the memory of six million murdered Jews. I look at my wife, my daughter, the people around me. A sudden fog has come over them. Cars, buildings, people have vanished. Green silhouettes appear before my eyes: a dense forest. I peer through a small grating laced with barbed wire; it belongs to a railroad freight car. I hear the clicking of wheels and feel the train jounce. The light of early dawn filters in. -Samuel Willenberg, at 16, upon the outbreak of war, Willenberg volunteered for the army. He was wounded at Chelmno and spent much of the occupation in Opatow.
