A very thought provoking story.
16 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title of this episode was definitely on the mark as it dealt with the issue of provenance that many people throughout the world are still facing over the events of World War II. It's a sad state that after all these year we're still having these issues. The manner in which this episode displayed the frustrations of one such family and the sometimes hopelessness of our legal system was very revealing. I am a student of history and this episode reminded me not to forget the trials that many of these families are facing yet today. The ending, a rare occurrence, Don's Epps realization that he felt the need to try and do something, especially within his own family added a great deal to this particular show. The song at the end of this episode was haunting yet very beautiful. I have looked for the title of this tune in the Numb3rs website episode list but have been unable to find it. I would very much like to know the title and artist so I may attempt to purchase it. I have yet to be disappointed by any episode of this particular show and enjoy it very much. Thank you.
