Summary
  • A Jew who survived the Holocaust obsessively rides the trains of postwar Europe in search of a Nazi concentration camp guard. The guard murdered his parents and he intends to kill him
  • "How does one live after surviving injustice? What satisfaction comes from revenge? Can the past ever be left behind?" "The Iron Tracks is a riveting tale of survival and revenge by the writer whom Irving Howe called "one of the best novelists alive today."" "Ever since he was released from a concentration camp forty years earlier, Erwin Siegelbaum has been obsessively riding the trains of postwar Austria. His days are filled with drink, his nights with brief love affairs and the torments of his nightmares. What keeps him sane is his mission to collect the menorahs, kiddush cups, and holy books that have survived their vanished owners. And the hope that one day he will find the Nazi officer who murdered his parents - and have the strength to kill him."--BOOK JACKET
