The Secret of During

Today on Tablet

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, prepare for heart break. Aaron Wolfe tells of watching his beloved grandfather, five years after his death, describe his time at Plaszów.

“I don’t know why I avoided watching the tapes for so long,” explains Wolfe.

“One creates images of one’s fathers and grandfathers, and mine are golems capable of superhuman feats that are at once inexplicable and inconceivable. Perhaps I needed to know only that he survived. Perhaps I was afraid to learn how he managed it, preferring to believe that his intellect alone was his superpower. Or maybe it’s simply that this golem terrified and protected me, and I wasn’t ready to let it go by learning the truth.”
