"A single photograph-an exceptionally rare "action shot" documenting the horrific final moment of the murder of a family-drives a riveting process of discovery for a gifted Holocaust scholar"-- This book is about the potential of discovery that exists, if we choose to delve into it. It is also about the voids that exist in the history of genocide. Perpetrators of genocide not only kill, they seek to erase the victims from the written records and even from memory. When we find one trace, we must pursue it both to prevent the intended extinction, and to counter it through research, education, and memorialization.
