Spotlight: Author Georg Rauch

Everything about Georg Rauch’s life seems improbable. It was improbable that a young, partly Jewish Austrian boy should have escaped the Holocaust, much less been mustered into the Wehrmacht. Improbable that he should have survived combat on the Eastern front, internment in a Russian POW camp, or the illness which he contracted while in captivity.

The only thing not improbable about Georg Rauch was that his towering talent would one day overshadow his tortuous past to make him a world-reknowned artist.  Or that his autobiography – which has sold over 70,000 copies – would one day attract almost as much interest as his art.

One thought on “Spotlight: Author Georg Rauch”

  1. I am delighted to see Georg’s book and art featured here, and would have liked to know who authored the piece.
    Just one caveat; When Farrar, Strous and Giroux picked up our book for world wide publication they changed the title to Unlikely Warrior, A Jewish Solier in Hitler’s Army. So if you are looking for Amazon reviews, they will probably be under this title, since our self-published version was taken off the market.

    Again, many thanks for featuring Georg his book and art. Phyllis Rauch
