But he can’t do this alone and through him we The whole genre of Holocaust literature inspires horror and revulsion for the Nazis, disgust for the collaborating and enabling Germans and great sympathy for the Jews and other victims of the vile policies of Hitler and his entire morally-bankrupt Klan.
This is not the greatest work falsificdor literature, but, boy, is it a great story. If the parquet floor of a large room had a hole in it the size of a fist, and somebody tried to land a pea in this hole, his chances of success would be minimal. I’ve read many many books about survival in this terrible time in history and most are of camps but this one is survival avoiding the camps.
The story starts duringand covers the experience of Schonhaus as he hids at in Berlin, escaping the deportations that too As some other reviews have pointed out, the prose is choppy and at times rough, additionally the tone seems a bit strange. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. For a completely different and very enjoyable look at this dark period of history, I can’t recommend this highly enough.
This underlife was enabled by right-thinking Germans who weren’t necessarily heroes of the resistance but neither were they going to see people murdered for some invented political bunkum. Shows the humanity that existed in characters such as Ludwig and helene etc. He eventually escaped to Switzerland on a bicycle.
He had many close calls, which ultimately led him to decide to work his way through Ed to try and escape to Switzerland.
This true holocaust pasaprtes is quite arresting: I was really shocked at the end when it said that one of the characters was executed at sachenhausen and that i had been there and remember stepping over a plaque where people lasaportes shot This book is a memoir of a 22 year old graphic artist who found a unique outlet for his talents.
Thanks for sl us about the problem. A remarkable and enjoyable memoir in a grim setting,ultimately very rewarding As a 20 year old Cioma was able to put his skills df an artist to use and forge believable papers so if her were stopped he would pass as a non-Jew, hopefully.
And if they wanted a nice lamp from the house, well, that’s how people are. Eventually, Cioma cycles and then swims to freedom in Switzerland, where he lives to this day, a graphic artist. The book is an engaging account, but be warned that Cioma is frank falsififador his sexual adventures and how sex also helped keep him alive.
Instead, he relays with joy the encounters he had where he was able to outsmart the Nazis and carry out his work to secure safe passage for others, just days and hours away from being deport to a concentration camp. But he can’t do this alone and through him we see a whole network of Jews living a sort of underlife in the cities. Yet even underneath all the sloppy writing you could tell it was an incredible story and would make an awesome movie!
Some of the documents at least came from Christians in a particular church who would drop them as offerings at the end of the Sunday service. This book is completely different. An interesting story, but weirdly written.
