Born in Vienna, Austria in 1924,
author Siegfried Ramler's remarkable
story traces his life, career and world
events spanning eight decades, on
several continents. His account of his
early childhood in Austria and his
country's annexation by Nazi
Germany, his escape to England via
Kindertransport in 1938, life in
London under the Blitz during World
War II, and his role at war's end as an
interrogator and interpreter at the
Nuremberg War Crimes Trials would
recall perhaps one of the darkest
periods in human history.
While at Nuremberg and while the
world bore witness to the shocking
revelations of Nazi atrocities, his
courtship and subsequent marriage to
a Hawaiian court reporter on the
Nuremberg staff would lead him on
an incredible journey from the ashes
of post-war Europe, across the
American continent, to a life of hope
and promise in Hawai'i where he
would embark on a long and
illustrious career as an educator at
Punahou Academy. While his work at
the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials
would later contribute greatly toward
the processes that instituted
international criminal law, he is
equally known for his lifelong
dedication to education and his work
in fostering international outreach
opportunities in education.
