The author is an Austrian journalist who was thrown into a French concentration camp, along with many other anti-Nazi German exiles in France, at the outbreak of the war. This book is the story of the incredible ineptitude and cruelty of the French bureaucracy and of the author's eventual flight across occupied and unoccupied France to Portugal and the United States.
