Inhaltsangabe: This book takes the reader through Dr. Wlodzimierz Szer's childhood in Yiddish prewar Warsaw, adolescence and imprisonment in wartime Russia, to the brutal reality of immediate postwar Poland, and the years of the socialist regime. Although largely autobiographical, the book provides a historically and intellectually compelling analysis of the social and political situation in Poland and Soviet Russia from the early 1930s to 1967.

Rezension: "I read the book with great attention, and I am spellbound...this multitude of things, people and details from the past (that the author) was able to hold in his memory... those accurate descriptions of prewar Warsaw, of his house, wartime experiences, atmosphere after the war... And everything written with such verve and energy...I was astonished by his recollection of details and the precise description of his childhood in prewar Warsaw - a world annihilated by war and which only exists today in people's memories."--Wanda Jelonkiewicz, journalist, Polish Press Agency PAP, Foreign Markets, The Warsaw Voice

"While W?odzimierz Szer, exiled with his father to Siberia, had been able to lead a relatively ordinary and mostly safe existence and be spared the horrors of the Holocaust, nevertheless his is a tale of loss, sorrow and wartime ordeals. At the same time it is a story of friendships, love and family, lively and filled with optimism. An important and significant document."--Bo?ena Keff, PhD, writer and poet, lecturer, University of Warsaw & University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Warsaw

"This epic of hope covers three continents, a world war, immense suffering and the murder of hundreds of relatives and friends. Against this backdrop, W?odzimierz Szer, a Renaissance Man, chronicles the loss of his family and his childhood, the search for his father, the meeting of Felusia, his future bride, and the birth of his children. He presents the horrors of war and the Holocaust as the monstrosities they were. Yet it is also the journey of a loving son, husband and father, a journey filled with obstacles most of us could not or would not endure. He finds humanity and compassion amidst the atrocities and overcomes them with determination and grace. His hope for, in his words, Homo Sapiens (wise person) is shaken, but remains firm at the end."--Brian E. Forschner, PhD, author, Cold Serial

"An eminent biochemist, humanist and music lover, a wise, cordial and kind man. A Polish Jew, and heir to Bund's traditions, offers a testimony of dignity and of commitment to his beliefs in most turbulent times of WWII in Poland and the Soviet Union. The author describes his fascinating scientific career of international dimensions during the post-war era. His compelling story is told with erudition and honesty commanding the utmost respect."
