In a futuristic Berlin a young Italian student sharp and curious will understand and will make us understand what the Shoah was.
In a Berlin of the future without any memory of the past, Jecky, a young Italian student, will understand what the Shoah has been. January 2045. While she is walking through the streets of Berlin without memory, she finds herself in a monument square, with thousands of concrete blocks of different heights and sizes. Inside that labyrinth she discovers a plaque: ’To the murdered Jews of Europe’. Intrigued, she wants to understand and begins a close correspondence with her former high school teacher. She became aware of the blackest page in the history of mankind. From the Nazi folly of a new Europe, dominated by the pure Aryan race, to the extermination of the Jews, this book by Frediano Sessi traces, all the stages that led the Germans to achieve the ’final solution’.
