 THAT CHRISTMAS 1941 MORN

In Germany, a bullet renders Rachel, now Jewish Yohann’s wife, barren.

When Dirk learns that his wife Delilah’s Nazi father is responsible, he is penitent.

The ability to recompense the family arrives in 1929. In a magnanimous gesture, Dirk and Delilah bestow Dolb and Donter, one each of two sets of twins born to them, to Yohann and Rachel – to be brought up by them as their own children.

On Christmas 1941 morning, when Delilah’s brother, a Nazi soldier, attempts to kill the Jews – including her flesh and blood, Dolb and Donter. She shoots first. The families flee, setting the scene for retribution, reprisal, rape and murder …thirteen years later!
