You can bring back everything, almost everything, to be exact, – money, fame, glory, a beloved person, you can even restore your fading health.

However, you cannot bring back time.

Especially if we are talking about childhood.

The childhood of a Jewish kid was always special, even if he was brought up in a “civilized” European country.

Each family kept “cult objects”, pictures of grandfather-rabbi, pious grandmothers in kerchiefs and caps.

These people had seemed sweet but not modern – until the day when prophecies from their books, predictions of a collapse, if the Jews finally leave their traditions, did not begin to come true.

On the artist’s canvas, the sky is turning to stone and falling apart – like a ceiling of a house that has just been hit by a bomb.

The land – the sweet land of cozy Europe – is turning into stone and tearing apart under feet.

A symbol of coziness – a baby cradle and toys – are hanging over the abyss and it seems that a toy train departs for the gates with the inscription “Work sets you free!” (“Arbeit machts frei!”) any minute now.

And only a solid steady pile of books at the background of the painting suddenly brings back hope.

Have all these books been read, have all the predestinations from them been learnt?

Because sages had warned about the Catastrophe, had said that prosperity in the countries of exile could not last forever.

Nobody had listened to them, although those who survived returned to the Jewish country and restored it…

And there are still the same Jewish letters – this time on children’s bricks, where the eternal “aleph” denoting the truth (“emet”) does not let us forget that the truth will always win!
