About the Author

Hans Ludwig Riess was born in 1921 in Berlin, Germany to Jewish parents. As a child, he saw Hitler's rise to power in 1933. He viewed the damage of Jewish shops and fires of synagogues on 'Kristall Nacht' and his father being taken to a concentration camp. Mr. Riess was sent to England on a 'Kinder Transport' in March 1939 to study engineering and lived with a British family. He sailed during the war on a Japanese diplomatic ship from England via South Africa to Shanghai, China, where he worked for a British trading company. He witnessed the Japanese occupation and was permitted to continue working since he had a German passport. Mr. Riess arrived in San Francisco, CA in 1947.

Hans Riess' autobiographic account is a remarkable story of how the rise of Nazism impacted the "assimilated" Jewish families of Berlin during the 1930s and forever changed lives thereafter. It is not a history of the Holocaust, but it is the story of the indignities suffered by those who were able to escape from Nazi Germany but nonetheless endured living upon the periphery of evil during the Second World War. Experiences of life in Berlin, London, and Shanghai are presented in a well-told story that informs as it inspires.

It is a story of survival. A very good read. It is a facinating story of what happened in WW II.
