About this Item

INSCRIBED by the author to a friend. A memoir of the author's adventures as a Jew in Poland during World War II. Born Edmund Horowitz, he spoke high German well enough to pose as an Aryan and hid in plain sight in Warsaw, working as an accountant in a department store. After the liberation of Poland, the author worked briefly as the minister for insurance in Krakow, until the Communist takeover, whem he was promptly arrested as a spy and sentenced to death. With the help of the British he escaped, exchanging a dead body for his own, and fled to Palestine, and eventually to America. A riveting story. Foxing to pages, else a near fine copy of a poorly bound book, in a very good dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 16171
