Publisher Comments:

In Nazi Germany, twenty-year– old graphic artist Cioma Schönhaus found a unique outlet for his talent: he forged documents for people fleeing the Reich, ultimately helping to save hundreds of lives. Even as the Gestapo posted his photo in public, he lived a daringly adventurous life, replete with fine restaurants and beautiful women, all the while managing to elude the Nazis until he could escape in the most unlikely of ways—by bicycling to Switzerland.

“A catalog of hairbreadth escapes, clever ruses, and brazen coups” (New York Times), The Forger is an astonishing and remarkably buoyant tale of wartime heroism and survival.

Synopsis:

The amazing autobiographical account of Cioma Schönhaus, the Jewish Schindler who evaded the Nazis and forged lifesaving documents in wartime Berlin.

About the Author

Cioma Schonhaus was born in Berlin in 1922. While on the Gestapos wanted list, he escaped with forged papers to Switzerland, where he still lives.
