A rabbi in rural Lithuania, Melamed made one great gift to his children: he died at 51, prompting all of them to leave for South Africa and thereby escaping the Nazi holocaust. Jacobson tells the story of the rabbi and his family, and finally goes in search of the village where the story begins. Originally published in 1998 by Hamish Hamilton.
