HolocaustWorld War II

This true, super-paced short story takes place some forty years after World War II and the Holocaust, when the author (A. Venger, an alias) comes eye to eye with the person responsible for his parents’ death in concentration camp Sobibor. In this autobiographical drama a score is settled.  Is justice meted out privately, preferable over no justice at all? You be the judge.

In the early 2000’s, a memoir with the title An Eye for an Eye was found in a safe in Tel Aviv, Israel. The safe belonged to A.Venger, a pseudonym. Not long before his death A. Venger told one of his sons that he wrote the memoir. In it, he confessed to having committed a murder. He assured his son that everything in the book was true. The story goes back to some thirty years after World War II, when Avenger was living in Israel and returned to his native Germany on business. There he serendipitously crossed paths with the policeman responsible for deporting his parents to their death. The writer’s troubled past turned into an obsession that lead him on a path of revenge. He took justice into his own hands by meticulously planning the police man’s murder. This story is an admission to committing the perfect murder. Today, three generations later, the impact and aftermath of World War II are still very much alive. A. Venger’s family members are divided over the truth of his memoir.This super-paced short story takes place after World War II and the Holocaust, when the author comes eye to eye with the man responsible for his parents’ death.
