A young teacher navigates the politics of a territory continually annexed: Memel/Klaipeda. A raw, short account of what happened to a serious teacher of physical education when the Germans took over Memel and parts of Lithuania in 1939. He struggles with his multicultural identity in face of life-threatening politics, and continually weighs his convictions in choosing citizenship and jobs. The story is a fictionalized memoir written in the third person.
