Could the twin brothers be considered lucky, being the only concentration
camp survivors from the Jewish community in Elburg? And what about the
few dozen out of 660 men deported from Putten who returned after the war,
were they lucky? In The Silent Final Henk Vaessen shows that for
those who survived the war camps the suffering did not stop when they were
liberated. For the spectator the war lasts from the beginning till the
end ... for the victim it lastst the rest of his life. And even then it
is not over ....
The story confronts the reader with controversial subjects like the
'second and third generation syndrome', the relationship Judaism-Christianity
and anti-semitism. At the same time the author interweaves humour and gravity
in the daily life of the main characters.
