About the author (2003)

Frank Stiffel, a former inmate of the Nazi Camps Treblinka and Auschwitz, arrives in the USA with his wife Ione and their three-year-old daughter Aurora, after a four-year Italian interlude in his neo-Darwinian struggle for survival of this least fit of the fittest. With all links to the first 30 years of his life severed, he comes to New York with no money, no marketable skills and hardly any knowledge of English. What’s more, there is no one to extend a helping hand. Is life worth fighting for? Look for an answer to this question in “The House of Margie”.
