*Newly Revised, with a Foreword by Rabbi Nathan Lopes Cardozo * He sold his soul to survive Auschwitz. Now he's taking it back! Alex was seventeen years old when he was deported together with his family to Birkenau. His mother and younger sister were gassed on arrival, but Alex was selected for work in the Birkenau Sonderkommando. He lived on, his memory filled with the death of a people. Unable to speak of what he had done to survive, he was locked in the silent prison of his guilt. Now, more than sixty years later, Alex is ready to face his memories in search of atonement. His spiritual struggle will lead him back into his past, and into the long and storied history of his people in search of an answer to the silence of God.
