Summary (From the publisher):

Examining the power of memory, "Exchanging Glances" captures the collision of childhood and war, as Wolf recollects her family's flight from the Russian Army during World War II. She remembers imagining her own dead body and watching prisoners released from a concentration camp with a combination of fear and something more painful than fear: knowledge.
