Written in Esperanto in the early '60s, this account of survival is told by a Budapest lawyer who secured false Christian identities for himself, his wife and his two children following the invasion of Hungary by the Germans in March 1944. Soros recounts his experiences with a beguiling humour, deep humanity and a wisdom that is humbling.
This edition offers non-Esperanto readers the first chance to read this extraordinary book. Maskerado is a unique testament of the Holocaust, a story as wise as it is compelling, of how one man managed not only to survive, but to retain his integrity, compassion, family unity and humour by 'dancing around death'.
