From the Inside Flap
This candid and intimate memoir by the world-renowned University of Pennsylvania radiologist, Hans Herlinger, begins with the story of how he survived the harrowing years of World War II. Exiled from his native Austria when the Nazis came to power, Herlinger was arrested in Malta and held by the British in Middle Eastern and African internment camps. What sustained him throughout the war years was his dream of becoming a doctor. Even as many members of his family died in concentration camps, this dream guided him magically out of harm's way. The world is far richer because it did.
Hans Herlinger practiced medicine and conducted medical research on several continents before becoming chairman of radiology at St. James's University Hospital in Leeds, England. His reputation as both a physician and research physician led to fame in medical circles throughout Europe -- before he flew to the United States and joined the radiology department of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Dr. Herlinger made his most important contributions to medicine during his quarter century at Penn, and was awarded the Cannon Medal, the highest honor in his field.
