Sam was a small boy when his father was murdered by the Nazis. He and his mother went into hiding on a farm in their village in Poland. His mother was discovered and taken from him, but the farmer's wife carried Sam to his aunt, who was the cook in a forced labor camp nearby. Sam lived out the war in that camp and then, with his aunt, Bronia, emigrated to Argentina where they began their lives anew. As an adult and a widower, Sam emigrated to Israel with his two sons. There he met a woman from his village who filled in some of the missing pieces from his early life.

Sam's story is one of passages—from loss to resilience, of a journey across three continents to build a life, of discovery later in life of details of his early years. Sam concludes with thoughts about antisemitism and the responsibility all of us have to combat the forces of hate.
