Born is a small Orthodox Jewish community in Romania, Herman Kahan was deported with his family to Auschwitz and miraculously survived the Holocaust. A refugee in Hungary, Paris and Norway, he is today a prominent Norwegian citizen, a businessman and family man.

This is the incredible autiobiography of Herman Kahan. In this book, Kahan relates to the story of his life and explains his religion to Knut M. Hansson. His is a shocking and thought-provoking story - a tale of imhuman suffering in Concentration Camps and in Wolfsberg labor camp, but also of the reclamation of a life believed lost.
