Book cover

Two Jewish brothers, children of Holocaust survivors, confront the ugly, growing wave of extreme right-wing violence in Germany. It is 1991, and a group of skinheads attack a foreign workers' hostel the same night as a neo-Nazi leader is shot dead. Michael Rosenzweig is the main suspect because he was in the hostel with his Vietnamese girlfriend the night it was attacked. But Michael can't recall what happened that night, and his brother Jacob, a young attorney, takes on his defense. The film raises issues about surviving oppressors and victims and asks the question: Are victims permitted to kill in revenge?
