Abstract: This is an unusual and moving work. It is not the frequently encountered chronologically based personal story that moves with a person's consciousness through time and events. Rather, these are stories that have the stark, savage quality of fairy tales for children. They are pared down to essentials and have a moral element.

One story tells of Dr. Mengele's fascination with a family of midget circus performers. He protected them and kept them apart; until the day he put their child on a table and tortured him to death.
