The Memory Transfer Man

It’s as if his destiny had been sealed before he was born. Did this occur at the moment that his mother was separated from her first husband and son when their train arrived at Auschwitz? Or when his father dove off his Auschwitz-bound train, only to be recaptured? Or perhaps it was after the war, when his father, the fiery leader of the survivors of Bergen-Belsen Displaced Persons Camp, and his mother, then a widow, fell in love and married.
