An unexpected phone call hurls Reshef into an intensive two-year journey, during which he has to solve a mystery that took shape in the 1930s and gradually unfolded in the present. A mysterious lot, a forgotten bank account, a people long gone - along with their memory which were obliterated during the Holocaust. All of these rise to the surface, bearing with them memories and emotions previously hidden away in the shoebox.

Yaron's story is an incredible search of his family's history.
The book unfolds like an excellent detective story, revealing facts and occurrences one after the other.
The narration is done very sensitively; it is accurate and preserves the spirit of Yaron's story.
The story comprises of several layers: the family history, the Holocaust, the thirties in Israel - Palestine and Ukraine of today, which makes it even more authentic and interesting.
