Nechama Baruchson, a native of Kovno, was a company commander of the underground movement of the ABZ in the Kovno ghetto. After the destruction of the ghetto, Nechama was taken to the Stutthof Concentration Camp from which she was dispatched on a death march.

Nechama joined the Bricah organisation and emigrated to Israel. In this Second Generation retelling of her life, Safira Rapoport sets out to piece together her mothers trajectory from Kovno to Israel using archival evidence and first-hand recorded testimony. In the process, we learn of how the huge impact of the Holocaust fashioned the experience of future generations of the Jewish people - contending with the shadow of collective trauma.
