About the author (2001)

Born in the Austro-Hungarian Galicia on 11.23.16, Frank Stiffel grew up, a young Jew, in the then Polish City of Lwow. In 1942, he and his family were deported to the Death Camp of Treblinka, from which he escaped, only to be apprehended a few months later. He served time in Gestapo jails and in the concentration camp of Auschwitz, until the Red Army liberated the camp on January 27th, 1945. Soon, he left Poland, leading a 20-persons group of Jewish survivors of the Holocaust, first to Romania, then to Italy. Traveling in Tuscany, he met the Girl of his Destiny. They were married within months. In 1950, Frank with his wife and a little daughter landed in New York as D.P.s, Displaced Persons. It took him years, again, to complete this manuscript, the Confession of a Jew, so to speak. The book covers almost the entire 20th Century and, even though it reads like fiction, it is an important page of History of Mankind.
