Introduction

    Unquestionably, one thing in this world is that one cannot choose his or her nationality, gender, race or time. Therefore I did just that. Arriving at 1700 hours on the 20th of March, 1936, into this crazy world, at a crazy time, on the wrong side of the fence!

    I was one of millions. Vienna, Austria, in March of 1936, was in turmoil. The cause was Hitler and his Nazis. Most people today know about this totally absurd time in history which destroyed millions of human beings, shifted thousands onto other continents, split families apart and created the biggest shift of people from one continent to another. Little did I know but I was to be sucked into this mess years later.
