Hannah realizes that Wolfe, Grandpa Will, was Eva's brother, who carried Fayge's body. Aunt Eva explains that after they came to America, they all changed their names. "Remembering was too painful. But to forget was impossible."

Hannah continues, explaining that she knows Aunt Eva believed when it was all over, she and her brother would be two again. Aunt Eva tells her that in the past, in her village, she was known as Rivka. "I remember," says Hannah. "Oh, I remember."
