Fragments from the volume: "SURVIVORS RESPOND"

In her testimony, Sonia Palty relates 2 distinct moments, with interesting social implications: First, the moment when a beast with human face tortures a group of defenseless Jews. Second, the moment when years later she meets this monster again, and the unexpected consequences of this event.
This fragment illustrates how the Romanian Holocaust was deliberately and systematically overlooked during the communist dictatorship which follwed the war.
