Non soltanto una memoria sulla Shoah, ma un resoconto appassionato e allo stesso pace lucido che punta a misurare l’intensità del contraccolpo nella generazione successiva. E il contraccolpo sta nell’impossibilità di avere radici, nella confusione linguistica, nel bisogno disperato di appartenere e nella condanna crudele di sentirsi estranei, comunque e dovunque. Sta nello stupore di fronte al destino, al male, alla sorte: «Vorrei sapere se è possibile trasmettere conoscenze e esperienze non con il latte materno, ma ancora prima, attraverso le acque della placenta o non so come, perché il latte di mia madre non l’ho avuto e ho invece una status atavica, una status da morti di popularity, che lei non ha più».
