A Brief Summary
Siggi B. Wilzig was born in Prussia, Germany. Despite his father having been a decorated World War One veteran and the family having lived in Germany for hundreds of years, Wilzig and his parents were put in Auschwitz by the Nazis for being Jewish. The teenage Wilzig was able to survive by pretending to be a skilled toolmaker and witnessed many horrors, including his father being beaten to death by a Nazi guard. When Auschwitz was liberated, Wilzig worked with the Americans to bring fugitive Nazis to justice. Eventually, he immigrated to the United States.
The second part of the book covers the rise of Wilzig from penniless immigrant in New York City to a CEO in the American banking and gas industries.
