Product description

Review

An extraordinary rediscovered manuscript, written in hiding by a friend of Stefan Zweig, which evokes the realities of the Holocaust and the French Occupation more vividly than almost anything I've read. (Jonathan Coe)

"Try to understand me," Moriz Scheyer begs the future readers of his memoir in 1944. And we do, leaving it drained, but exhilarated by the description of how he roamed an unfriendly Europe, stateless. With the publication of this mesmerizing book, his search for asylum might just be over. (Ronald C. Rosbottom, Amherst College, Author When Paris Went Dark: The City of Light under German Occupatikon, 1940-1944)

Book Description

A miraculous memoir of escape, survival and art in wartime Europe
