I was also kind of disturbed by the graphic details of his er Since he was blond and blue-eyed many Nazi This book is a memoir of a 22 year old graphic artist who found a unique outlet for his talents.

He seemed to me like a cocky and irresponsible kid who didn’t appreciate the good that he was doing. The story starts duringand covers the experience of Schonhaus as he hids at in Berlin, escaping the deportations that took the rest of his family.

The book reads more like fiction than biography since we are constantly going from great danger to relative safety and back again. This memoir is excellent first and foremost because of a beautiful translation which I’ll assume reflects a beautiful composition in the original German although I haven’t seen the text in German.

Thanks for telling us pasapotes the problem. For one who is interested in personal survival under extremely trying circumatances,he will find t “The Forger” is the story of a young German-Jewish boy who finds himself stranded in Nazi Germany during World War II.

He lost his parents to the camps in Poland, but he was finally able to escape to Switerland, via bicycle, in the yawning days of the war. Cioma suffered little compared to the many Jews who lived in Berlin during that time. While he was helped several times, he saved himself by taking risks and falsifiador to his guns.

But the most fun one! I picked this up in Evanston with the idea of giving it away, not expecting to read it myself. What Cioma did was alter genuine documents from the original German owners to the new Jewish ones. Even as the Gestapo posted his photo in public, he managed to have a steamy love affair with the beautiful consort of an SS officer.


Personally i thought this book was quite rough around the edges and poorly written, it was very difficult to follow and lacked fluidity. It would probably be easier to follow in English translation it’s available pasaporfes paperback as pasaporttes Forger: No trivia or quizzes yet.

This true holocaust story is quite arresting: A good story, but very choppy and would have benefited from stronger editing. The writing kind of jumps around, and it’s not always very clear when one scene changes to the next, but the tale of this young man hiding out in Berlin and forging documents is fascinating.

Apr 02, Mark rated it falsifficador it. I had to answer those questions because the author was very brave and stood up and was counted against the Nazis. Cioma is a cheeky chappy who will always find a way around any situation and thoroughly enjoys outwitting those who would have him deported to the camps and gassed.

This is an incredible story of someone doing something truly corageous. Since he avoided the concentration camps it was a bit more mild, although still portraying the unbelievable inhumanity they were treated pasapores. As a 20 year old Cioma was able to put his skills fxlsificador an artist to use and forge believable papers so if her were stopped he would pass as falsificadkr non-Jew, hopefully.
