“I suppose you could call me a Holocaust survivor”, begins this book by an exceptional man. “But I wasn’t liberated from the Holocaust. It liberated me”.

Running from the Nazis, Hans Kahn traveled by bicycle, foot and train, hid in coal bins and stowed away on a freighter. He hobnobbed with smugglers, whores, priests, resistance fighters and Nazi officers, killed a German Prison guard and took shelter in a French brothel that serviced Nazi officers. Kahn gained his manhood and lost his innocence and religious faith, charming and fighting his way to the sea that he had loved since he was a boy and to a commission to the wartime Dutch navy.

Told with humor, anger and biting penetration, this is his autobiography: an adventure book, sea story, business saga, and authentic account of a man’s struggle not only with the powers of evil, but also with the power of good.
