(From the publisher):
Sol Nazerman survived the Holocaust. His wife and children did not-he witnessed their murder in a concentration camp. He is now a Harlem pawnbroker, emotionally dead and indifferent to the desperation around him, who runs his shop as a front for a racketeer. With the payoff he joylessly supports a tribe of relatives. In a powerful and unexpected climax, the sacrifice of another man at last reaffirms Sol Nazerman's humanity.
