The story of a German boy born in 1921 of a Jewish mother and a Christian father. The book traces the boy's years of living alone and in foreign countries, finally ending up in America in 1938 to serve in the U.S. Army and later become an academician. A story at once typical and unique, enriched by occasional footnotes to scholarly works. The title sets the tone of an appealing book.
