Summary
"When a Christian boy disappears in a fictional Eastern European town in the 1920s, the local Jews are quickly accused of ritual murder. There is tension in the air and a pogrom threatens to erupt. Suddenly, an extraordinary man - Moshe the dreamer, a madman and mystic - steps forward and confesses to a crime he did not commit, in a vain attempt to save his people from certain death. The community gathers to hear his last words - a plea for silence - and everyone present takes an oath: whoever survives the impending tragedy must never speak of the town's last days and nights of terror." "For fifty years the sole survivor keeps his oath - until he meets a man whose life depends on hearing the story, and one man's loyalty to the dead confronts head-on another's reason to go on living."--BOOK JACKET
