Admirers from all over the world now visit Hirschfelder at his home on Southend-on-Sea to pay homage to the great man. He is a literary icon, his book an acknowledged masterpiece. But fame has come at a price. He fled Vienna shortly before the outbreak of war and lived in London with the family of a judge. In 1940, he was classified as an 'undesirable alien' and sent to camp with other internees on the Isle of Man. The friends he made there would change his life forever.
