"Unforgettable scenes of twentieth century Lithuanian history are revealed here—Jewish and Lithuanian interwar Kaunas, the cruel realities of the war and the Holocaust, rescue and rebirth. This important cultural critic's epic story is neither monograph nor textbook, but rather an opportunity to touch the past."—Saulius Sužiedelis
