Summary

When a Christian boy disappears in Kolvillag, a fictional town in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Europe in the 1920s, fanatics are quick to point a finger at the Jews, accusing them of tire age-old myth of ritual murder. There is tension in the air, and a pogrom threatens to surface. Suddenly, someone steps forward and confesses to a crime he did not commit in order to save his people from certain death. Moshe is a dreamer, a madman and a mystic, a man both revered and misunderstood by those around him. The community gathers to hear his last words, a plea for silence. Everyone present takes an oath: should anyone survive the impending tragedy, he is never to speak of the town's last clays and nights of error.

Only one man survives. For fifty years Azriel keeps Iris oath to be silent about these horrific events, until he meets a man whose life depends on hearing the story. Copyright Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
