The Story of a Life
The next few years of Aharon s life are both harrowing and heartrending: he hides, alone, in the Ukrainian forests from peasants who are only too happy to turn Jewish children over to the Nazis: he has the presence of mind to pass himself off as an orphaned gentile when he emerges from the forest to seek work: and, at war s end, he joins the stream of refugees as they cross Europe on their way to displaced persons camps that have been set up for the survivors. Aharon eventually makes his way to Palestine: once there, he attempts to build a new life while struggling to retain the barely remembered fragments of his old life, and he takes his first, tentative steps as a writer. As he begins to receive national attention, Aharon realizes his life s calling: to bear witness to the unfathomable. In this unforgettable work of memory, Aharon Appelfeld offers personal glimpses into the experiences that resonate throughout his fiction.'
