Storyline

The year is 1991; the great city of Berlin is coming to terms with the bloodshed of the last century. Memories seep from every inch of concrete.

Your name is Asher Jarach. Born in Berlin, you have lived in Canada since you escaped Germany in 1944.

A week ago you got an email from Mendel, your best friend in the years leading up to the outbreak of war in Europe. To find peace, Mendel is visiting Berlin. Your mission is to re-trace the steps of your youth and meet your friend.
