The narrator is living in Chicago, and is doing well financially because he owns a restaurant and an apartment building. We learn that he, as a young Ukrainian during the Nazi occupation of Ukraine after the 1941 invasion, participated in the Holocaust. He wrote pro-German propaganda and especially, on one occasion, forced a group of Jews into a cattle car to be taken to an extermination camp (paragraphs 31–36). This event remains fixed in his mind because even though he was young at the time he participated in an inexcusable atrocity.
