Schwebel was ten years old when his family escaped from Vienna in 1938 to seek refuge from Nazi persecution in Paris. After various sojourns in France, they fled to Lisbon, then to Casablanca, and eventually reached Mexico City. A man of many talents Schwebel worked as electrical engineer, cameraman, advancing to the position of technical director of Mexico's largest TV network. He also became an actor, folk musician, painter and chess champion. He explored his new home country on many trips.
These recollections consist of a chronological narrative and ten character portraits. With alert curiosity, calm precision, and a wise touch of humor, they tell the poignant story of a remarkable life and its many events.

Book Description Ariadne Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Author Schwebel was ten when his family left Vienna in 1938 to seek refuge in Paris from the Nazis; they later fled to Lisbon, Casablanca, and finally to Mexico City in 1942. In 1976 he began publishing stories taken from his colorful life in both Spanish and German; this title brings together his chronological narrative as well as 10 character portraits. The work is interesting and entertaining, and though a part of a scholarly series (Studies in Austrian Literature, Culture, and Thought: Biography, Autobiography, Memoirs Series) it may be of interest to general readers of memoirs, particularly those interested in a multicultural perspective.
