    Escape from Babiy Yar

    Yakov Kaper

    Документальные воспоминания о его побеге из Бабьего Яра кратко и без прикрас описал Яков Капер в этой книге.

    О том, что с ним случилось в годы войны, Яков Капер рассказывал своему сыну Ефиму. Сегодня Ефим Капер – известный врач, уважаемый в общине человек вспоминает:

    “Всю свою сознательную жизнь, а говорят, что сознательная жизнь у ребенка появляется с трех лет, я знал отца и его друзей, с которыми он был в Бабьем Яру. Что касается непосредственно рассказов о Бабьем Яре – эти рассказы мной воспринимались как страшная сказка. Ужасные страдания, которые они испытывали, я еще не мог воспринимать адекватно.
