About this title

Synopsis:

There are many stories told by survivors of concentration camps during the Nazi reign. But this story is unique. It tells individual tales about a large and close-knit family's attempts to flee Adolf Hitler. Read on and discover how their resourcefulness allowed them to escape the horrors of the Holocaust.
After six years of research, author Ernie Weiss shares his family's remarkable story of survival through Out of Vienna: Eight Years of Flight from the Nazis.
Out of Vienna is about twenty eight members of the author’s family from Vienna and Prague, who were persecuted by the Nazis. Ten did not survive the Holocaust. Nine were murdered by Nazis. One committed suicide.
Weiss is the son of a Dachau Concentration Camp survivor, yet he never asked about his father's time in Dachau. Perhaps Weiss wanted to forget the years spent fleeing the Nazis. It was only after his mother's death that he determined to find out more about his father's incarceration, and their eight years of hectic flight through six countries. Thus began a quest to discover other relative’s whereabouts and fate. The author organized his father's old photographs and movies and got in touch with relatives and friends. Then he contacted and visited municipal and government agencies in Vienna, Israel, Italy, France, and Dachau to document his story.
A nonfiction story, Out of Vienna follows the Weiss family's long flight through thirteen European countries to escape the Nazis' iron fist and cruelty. Engrossing from beginning to end, its dialogue and vivid physical descriptions of places and events are based on personal interviews, research and the author's own recollections. A certified page-turner, this is a story meant to be shared with others. Follow this family's remarkable journey and discover how their resourcefulness allowed them to survive. Though they experienced many difficulties, they never lost hope for a better future and at the end of eight long years - their dream finally came true.

About the Author:

Ernie Weiss is the son of a concentration camp survivor. He was born in Vienna in 1931. When Hitler invaded Austria in 1938 Ernie and his family fled to Yugoslavia and then to Cuba.

Now retired, he had a career in sales and marketing. This book is about his father’s imprisonment in Dachau and the flight from the Nazis of 28 members of his family. Not all of them lived to tell the tale.
