Summary
The Fiftieth Gate is the story of a son who enters his parents' memories and, inside the darkness, finds light. Baker takes us to a place of horror, and then brings us back to reflect on these events and remember 'Never again'. Across the silence of fifty years, Baker and his family travel from Poland and Germany to Jerusalem and Melbourne, as the author struggles to uncover the mystery of his parents' survival: his father Yossl was imprisoned in concentration camps and his mother Genia was forced into hiding after the Jews of her village were murdered. In writing The Fiftieth Gate, Mark Baker describes a journey from despair and death towards hope and life
