During the Holocaust, 17-year-old Freddie Knoller escaped to France, was interned, escaped again, and made his way to Paris where he spent two years living on commissions from guiding German Soldiers to night clubs and brothels. Arrested by the Gestapo, Freddie fled and joined the Resistance, but was soon caught and deported to Auschwitz. Freddie survived the camp and the infamous death march through the resources of luck, friendship, and optimism. After a period in Dora Nordhausen, where he was forced to witness the hideous executions of other slave laborers, he was finally liberated from Belsen-Bergen by the British on April 15th, 1945. This book tells his story, in all its harrowing and haunting detail.
