      A man couldn't recall whether Shmiel had two daughters or four. After 36 hours without food or water, she and the odd Ruchele book were driven to Taniawa wood, stripped, shot and buried in a ditch. They were, of course, formidably difficult for him; for a start, many were in Polish, Yiddish or Ukrainian, none of which Mendelsohn spoke. Once bona fides were made, the bond was immediate. But it was his first. Daniel Mendelsohn's The Lost is the story of his search for six relatives, his grandfather's brother's family, who were killed in the Holocaust.

      Without a doubt, we passed each other every day, unacquainted and unaware. How Ruchele book tell them? For instance, as he describes, on October 28th,Gestapo and Ukrainian police rounded up Bolechow's leading Jews; Shmiel was on the list but Ruchele book at home; unfortunately, his sixteen-year-old daughter, Ruchele, was. But for a little while some of that can be rescued, if only, faced with the vastness of all that there is and all that there ever was, somebody makes the decision to look back. Though he is a little hard to follow, since he is using a different voice for each character, our parents encourage us to stay up until the end. In it, a hundred families disappear into the ash.

      If I tell you my story, it will become your story. It embarrasses me to say so, but it's not Levi's best work. But his grandfather, before committing suicide Ruchele book an old man, held his tongue. This extraordinary book, at its simplest level, is a more or less chronological account of Mendelsohn's quest to learn the fate of his great-uncle Schmiel Sam Jager, his wife Ester, and their four daughters, Lorka b. You live in a house. Yet with the ascent of fascism, they turned on their Jewish brethren with a primal ferocity.

The next day Bernie Mandelbaum came up to Moskowitz after morning services. What am I going to tell Mama? At the time Yechiel was eleven years old. No one knew the whole truth, and no one would ever know. My doctor tells me I have the prostate the size of a watermelon.

One of Mendelsohn's aunts, asked by Ruchele book inquisitive relation Ruchele book details of her own birth, replies, "I'm not going to tell Ruchele book when I was born because it would have been better if I'd never been born", and we realize that though the survivors were not lost in the same way as Ruchele and Frydka and Schmiel and Ester and Lorka and little Bronia, still, they lost everything they had and are lost as well.

You just had to wonder. Most of Mendelsohn's maternal relatives got out of Poland and came to America before the war. The book is a testament to, and an enactment of, the trappings of memory's rituals: how we linger, defend, indulge, and exhaust what we hope to believe about the past, and what we must relinquish as speculation.

After this Aktion, Bolechow's remaining Jews, who included Ruchele's parentswere obliged, via the Judenrat, to reimburse the Gestapo for the ammunition expended and to pay 3kg of granular coffee to cover labour expenses. One had been shot; the other sent to the gas chamber.

And of course that is what Mendelsohn himself has done, to look back, to see "not only what was lost but what there is still to be found. But Mendelsohn is as much concerned with what is unknowable about his ancestors as he is with exhuming the residues of their lives.

Confronting the past

Here and there, he met with old inhabitants of Bolechow; he dug through their keepsakes and found bits and pieces that led to Shmiel and his family. We encountered each other again after the war, thanks to a chance meeting at a cultural conference in Rome.

It infects his brooding and leads Ruchele book, in part, to a career as a classicist, studying Greek texts and explicating the origins of our storytelling traditions.

Same Ruchele book for a nose. Then, as he got even further into the project, he saw that just as important as the stories he told was the way he told these stories, and that an account of his evolving ideas and how Ruchele book were influenced by both the research process and his reading needed to be Ruchele book too.

It is a grand book, an ambitious undertaking fully realized. Of, for instance, how, successfully hidden herself, she had bribed someone to bring her parents and in-laws to a certain place from which she Ruchele book take them Ruchele book safety.

These and the many other, often quite extended, meditations on the limits of our historical knowledge risk bringing a degree of narrative self-consciousness to The Lost that could turn it too far towards Mendelsohn himself.

Why answer its calls and its silences? Somehow she would join us later. The sheer scope of the horror and loss would be overwhelming even if it were possible to represent it all, so instead we get glimpses, again and again, so that like Mendelsohn himself, though we are focusing on the Jagers, we can never forget that there were many, many others—or if we do, we are soon chastened: As I looked I suddenly felt foolish for asking Mrs Begley to look in her book [of the victims] for my relatives, whom I never knew and who meant something rather abstract for me at that point, when so many of hers, so much closer to her, were there too.

Anyone with half a brain rattling around somewhere in his head knows it was Hitler and not You. Mendelsohn opens by recalling his Orthodox Jewish grandfather Abraham, whose "devoutness" and "wonderful clothes" he cherishes. Another memory.

He tells of the small quotidian dramas and the eventual maw that overtook them, the blaze of suffering that followed: the cruelty of the Germans and the baseness of their Ukrainian collaborators; the inability of Jews to keep their heads when all about them were so many murderers, so many enemies.

But as he lifted his arms he saw human appendages. And Fruma, living next door, constantly in and out of the house, was more like a second mother, as nurturing as our own and less intimidating. As a boy in the s, the author heard only that Shmiel, his wife Ester, and Lorka, Ruchele, Bronia, and Frydka were "killed by the Nazis.
