Description
In Nazi Germany, 20-year-old graphic artist Cioma Schönhaus found a unique outlet for his talent: he forged documents for people fleeing the Reich, ultimately helping to save hundreds of lives. Even as the Gestapo publicly posted his photo, Schönhaus lived a daringly adventurous life, replete with fine dining and conspicuous romances, all the while managing to elude the Nazis right up to the day he bicycled to Switzerland and escaped.

"In the vast literature devoted to the Jewish experience under the Nazis, Mr. Schönhaus's slim book deserves a special place, as much for its tone as for the remarkable events it records: a catalog of hairbreadth escapes, clever ruses and brazen coups. The background is undeniably grim, and his personal circumstance dire, but Mr. Schönhaus relates his experiences with an often joyful bounce and a dry sense of humor. If the prospect of imminent death concentrates the mind, as Samuel Johnson observed, it can also sharpen wit."—NYTBR
