He recalls his observant childhood within the small Jewish community; antisemitic harassment in the local school; his mother's death; his father's remarriage; attending school in Darmstadt; the absence of antisemitism; attending medical school in Frankfurt; moving to Geneva in 1933 to continue his studies (his departure was the day before enactment of a law requiring visas for Jews); emigration to the United States to join an uncle; passing his medical exams; and marriage, divorce, remarriage, and divorce. Mr. B. discusses learning his father and stepmother were deported and perished; his sister's emigration to England on a children's transport; strained relations with his father before leaving Germany; difficult relations with his own children; and attending synagogue, which he views as a link to his past.
