This is the compelling account of the life and work of Albert Reuss (1889-1975), a Jewish painter and sculptor who developed a uniquely individual style. Born in Vienna, he emigrated to England in 1938 following Hitler's annexation of Austria. In the process, Reuss lost many members of his family, as well as all his possessions, and the reputation he had built up as an artist in Vienna prior to his departure. Many of his artworks were confiscated by the Nazis. He and his wife Rosa were helped to escape from Vienna by Cornishman and Quaker, John Sturge Stephens. Reuss continued to work as an artist in England, but his style changed dramatically, reflecting the trauma he had suffered. Following his exile, Reuss held numerous solo exhibitions in municipal galleries throughout England and in 1948, he and Rosa moved to Mousehole, Cornwall, where they established the ARRA Gallery. 0From 1953 to 1973 he held regular one-man shows at the renowned O'Hana Gallery in London. Several provincial galleries hold his work, most notably Newlyn Art Gallery in Cornwall, as do the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Belvedere Gallery and the Albertina in Vienna, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Israel. In researching the life of this intriguing man, Susan Soyinka interviewed many people who knew him, and also retrieved a huge archive on Reuss from Vienna, which included much of his lifetime's correspondence. A most fascinating story emerged of this lonely and isolated artist's struggle to develop his art and to survive, a story full of human drama and tragedy, all set against the background of world historic events. The book includes first-hand accounts of the couple's escape from Vienna, and of their experience as refugees in war-time Britain.

'Man erlebt und begreift ein Stück deutsche Geschichte.' Frankfurter Rundschau Lorenz Beckhardt, in einem katholischen Internat erzogen, erfährt erst als Erwachsener, dass er Jude ist und viele Verwandte Opfer des Holocaust wurden. Akribisch geht er der Geschichte seiner Familie nach -- vom Großvater Fritz Beckhardt, dem glühenden Patrioten und Weltkriegspiloten, bis zur Generation, die nach 1945 einen Neuanfang im Land der Täter wagt. Erschütternd beschreibt Beckhardt die Wiedergutmachungsbürokratie in der frühen Bundesrepublik und die alltägliche Demütigung durch Nachbarn. 'Eine jüdische Familiengeschichte, facettenreich ausgeleuchtet.' Tilman Jens, Hessischer Rundfunk
