Stefan grows up in Warsaw, Poland, barely aware he is Jewish and part of a small, assimilated community steeped in Polish culture. But in 1939, Nazi Germany occupies Poland, and Stefan suffers the same fate as the rest of the Jewish community when he is forced into the Warsaw ghetto. At risk of deportation to the Treblinka death camp, Stefan manages to escape the ghetto and go into hiding, isolated and in constant danger. In A Symphony of Remembrance, Stefan Carter sounds an urgent call to learn from the past, acknowledge ongoing human suffering and create a more just future.
