Note: 
The author's Polish-Jewish family led a comfortable life until the Nazi occupation. After his father was arrested, Nir, then eleven years old, his mother and sister began a four year odyssey of false identity. Because they had the good fortune to look Polish and were lucky enough to know a skilled forger, they lived, worked, and socialized with Nazis and anti-Semitic Poles. Today, Nir is a psychiatrist who speaks regularly to groups about his lost childhood. There are aspects of a public address to this narrative: it is unevenly written but engaging, nevertheless.
