“We discussed the present, but what we really meant was our past. Both of us were living among the living, yet we didn't really belong with them-
we were actually the dead, on stolen leave, accidental survivors who got left behind in life.”
Binjamin Wilkomirski, Fragments: Memories of a Wartime Childhood
