Acerca de


The amazing tale of a Jew who survived in Nazi Europe using false papers to travel through Austria, Poland, Ukraine, Crimia, Italy and Germany. He eventually joined the Italian underground and helped destroy at night the projects he built during the day. This is more than a powerful memoir. There are many eyewitness accounts of Nazi horror, but none has this unique combination of pathos, ingenuity, and defiance.

About the Author:

Born in Vienna, Austria, Gleisner moved to Poland when his father took over a family film distrbution and production business. They fled the advancing German armies, his parents perished under the Nazi regime, and he worked first as a slave laborer. Later with false papers he worked for a German building firm all over eastern and central Europe, joined the Italian partisans, and at War's end wound up back in Austria working for American Military Government. He emigrated to the U. S., set up his own import/export firm, and won the Presidential "E" award for Excellence in Exporting.
