Wilhelm Neimann, a Wehrmacht soldier, returns from the eastern front a hero but a shattered man. The university position he had hoped for is now beyond his reach. He teaches history in a gymnasium in Schweinfort, a small village in southwestern Germany. As he becomes part of this small community -- one where Jews always found refuge and rescue -- he struggles to regain memories of his final engagements in the war. A small group of students, the Jugendknotte, are equally challenging. One is convinced that the ashes from the crematoria have entered the food chain making all Germans Jewish -- from the inside out because of the DNA. Two others are determined to find the SS officer that killed their uncle during the war. Schweinfort has its own stories going back centuries.
