Book - 1996
Rate this:
Orbach's memoir is a stylish and inspiring account of his life in Berlin's underworld of "divers" where young Jews survived by street smarts and an indomitable spirit which he delicately portrays. After his father is arrested and his mother and sister go into hiding, the young man is left to his own devices finding company among other survivors who outwit the Nazis in surreal adventures. Finally, betrayed by an informer, Orbach is sent to Auschwitz. But, as he says himself, he has left that part of his journey for others to tell, concentrating instead on the humanity and faith which he found on Berlin's streets. Distributed by Paul and Company.
