Il libro racconta, sul filo della memoria, la triste esperienza di una deportazione, durante gli anni oscuri della II guerra mondiale. Siamo in una città italiana al campo di Belsen, dove il giovane protagonista incontra un ufficiale prigioniero di guerra, di cui diventerà amico.
Da vecchio egli rivive le vicende di un tempo spezzato e le narra al nipote, giovane studente liceale alle prese con i problemi e le aspirazioni dell’adolescenza.
Il racconto risulta ricco di pathos ma alleggerito dal ricordo delle più coinvolgenti esperienze umane del secolo scorso.
II libro è corredato di schede operative che aiutano ad approfondire le tematiche presenti nella narrazione.
