The rare 1932 graphical novella of the artist Leo Roth (1914-2003) contains thirty original linocuts made in the spirit of German Expressionism. The turbulent black-and-white linocuts tell the tragic story of an abandoned child, raised by a Christian woman in a remote village. The boy learns of his true identity and is torn between women and the Christian world on the one hand, and the Jewish world on the other.
