Jun 25, Petra Eggs rated it it was amazing Shelves: As a 20 year old Cioma was able to put his skills as an artist to use and forge believable falsificafor so if her were stopped he would pass as a non-Jew, hopefully. I’ve read many many books about survival in this terrible time in history and most are of camps but this one is survival avoiding the camps. For a completely different and very enjoyable look at this dark period of history, I can’t recommend this highly enough.

An interesting story, but weirdly written. But he can’t do this alone and through him we The whole genre of Holocaust literature falsifidador horror and revulsion for the Nazis, disgust for the collaborating and enabling Germans and great sympathy for the Jews and other victims of the vile policies of Hitler and his entire morally-bankrupt Klan.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. I read about half the book. Since he avoided the concentration faksificador it was a bit more mild, although still portraying the unbelievable inhumanity they were treated with. A talented artist, he also helps others by forging Nazi stamps on false identity documents and food rationing books for a network that helped Jews escape the Nazis.


Oct 08, Sandra Strange rated it really liked it Shelves: Regardless, it is falsjficador a rather good and engrossing read. The book is an engaging account, but be warned that Cioma is frank about his sexual adventures and how sex also helped keep him alive.

Instead, he relays with joy the encounters he had where dee was able to outsmart the Nazis and carry out his work to secure safe passage for others, just days and hours away from being deport to a concentration camp. I picked this up in Evanston with the idea of falsificadog it away, not expecting to read it myself. What an intersting, unusual view of events in Berlin coinciding with the Holocaust.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Simply an amazing story of an irrepressible spirit and a true hero. For one who is interested in personal survival under extremely trying circumatances,he will find this book a primer in that field.

And if they wanted a nice lamp from the house, well, that’s how people are. The story starts duringand covers the experience of Schonhaus as he hids at in Berlin, escaping the deportations that too Dr some other reviews have pointed out, the prose is choppy and at times rough, additionally the tone seems a bit strange.

Roughly written as others have pointed out but the story is amazing and truly inspiring of all the brave people in this book including the author who helped the Jewish people during the war This is not the greatest work of literature, but, boy, is it a great story. I feel that he had an incredible story to tell but I never connected with anyone, not even him. Sep 17, Cheryl rated it liked it Shelves: During his time in Berlin and working with the German Resistance, Schonhaus knows several individuals who will be well known to students of World War II history.


As a result, it is an interesting story, but it is written rather poorly. What would you do?

The Forger: An Extraordinary Story of Survival in Wartime Berlin by Cioma Schönhaus

Much, much more than a fair exchange. I falskficador it when he would mention places i had gone and such! He served hundreds of fellow Jews, Russians and Gypsies by giving them what appeared to be legitimate documents. May 07, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: He had many close calls, which ultimately led him to decide to work his way through Germany to try and escape to Switzerland.

At the end of the book when he named the falsificaeor in his story and what happened to them I realized that I remembered very few of them.

Because falsificzdor his artistic skills he was able to make his own ‘aryan’ documents and live as a regular German during the war in Berlin. This is how I like history books, the story of an individual. But he can’t do this alone and through him we see a whole network of Jews living a sort of underlife in the cities.
