When my children started asking questions about my parents, I decided to break the wall of silence and tell them the truth about me. I needed to express what compelled me to dramatically change my life. I finally had to explore the relationship with my father and how it was overshadowed by the Holocaust. Our unresolved conflict and his denial motivated me to search for answers, and I found them within me and my acquired faith: Against all odds, change is possible... This is my story.
- A highly-decorated Second World War German tank commander
- A young man seeking the truth and spiritual orientation
- The relationship of father and son entwined in German-Jewish history
