A Letter from the Past

Ofer Zingerman

The letter arrived 28 years late. From Berlin, East-Germany to Tel-Aviv, Israel. But what troubles Menachem is its content. He’s afraid to find out what might his brother, whom which he holds no contact for 40 years, had written there. With the help of Moshe, his neighbor, Menachem dares to confront a secret that’s been haunting him since his adolescence. A secret, born with a life changing decision he took during World War II. Only now, Menachem finds that a horrible decision is yet ahead.
