The old man sits around the campfire with the four children. In the distance (darker color) you can see the charred remains of their synagogue. Somehow the old man has been able to escape with the children. He has rescued only one sack of belongings, but many books. Books have always been the center of his life. So now he sits and reads to the children. Three children huddle close to listen. The fourth child has already rolled over and fallen asleep.
