Holocaust is past, but never gone. Nesher (The Secrets, 32nd) boldly confronts the stranglehold of the traumatic past on the present through a story of two Israeli sisters, the daughters of survivors, delving into the dark mystery of their father’s former life in Poland during World War II. The father’s confession of his desperate fight for survival does not offer consolation; instead the sisters’ search for the truth raises fresh questions about shifting identities and family secrets. A heart-tugging family saga reaching out to the road of forgiveness.
