As a modern presentation of a Solomon Judgement it is based on
the author’s own life as an orphan of the Holocaust whose
parents were deported to Auschwitz in September 1942 and did not
return. Three weeks before this they placed their three-year old
child, Adolphe, with a Flemish family who raised him.

“A powerful, touching and insightful play. The way the author
has interwoven love, sacrifice, loss, fear, horror, jealousy,
guilt, gratitude, responsibility, respect and devotion with so
many other feelings and emotions in his telling of this most
personal story is exceptionally moving. “
