Welcome fans, friends, and you who have yet to read the book!
Though it has won prizes and rave reviews, The Jew with The Iron Cross. A Record of Survival in WWII Russia, hasn't had its own space on the web until tonight. I welcome you all and look forward to sharing news, old and new, about the book and those who have enjoyed it so much. Phyllis
Georg originally wrote the book on yellow legal pads, by hand, in German. The period during the writing of his memoir, was the only time he ever left his studio and stopped painting altogether.. As he completed the day's work he passed the pages on to me, and I translated them into English, editing at the same time. The manuscript was read by scores of friends and visitors to our Mexican B and B. Many told us that Georg's story needed to be told more widely. In July of 2006, 22 years after he wrote it, the book was published. On November 3rd Georg died at home.
