Takov and the Vicinity

A Novella by

"How do you say 'murderers' in Polish?" Mr. Getzner asks the young scholar he's just hired to help him chronicle the dark history of Takov, his former hometown.

Getzner, who fled Takov during the Holocaust, has made it his mission to commemorate the town's murdered Jews. His new assistant's job is to translate their tragic story into Hebrew, but he soon comes across information that reveals Getzner's true motive: to obscure his father's role as a Nazi informant. Now the assistant must decide if he's willing to rewrite history in order to alleviate his employer's guilt. And if he does, who will be responsible - the one who knowingly tells the lie or the one who agrees to hide the truth?
