The Nine Lives of Martin Katz

“A few months ago I turned 91,” wrote Martin Katz, “and I think that I don’t have an endless amount of time to report to the generation of my grandchildren about the miracle that I’ve experienced: I have survived.” ![/sites/default/files/old/1845.jpg:right]("" "") His memoir, My Nine Lives was published by Kremayr & Scheriau in March, and he felt a new sense of urgency to tell his story to a wider audience. Written in first person perspective, filled with specifics, anecdotes, dates and times, it is a powerful retelling, a fascinating, even breathtaking story of his life as a Jewish teenager in Vienna in the 1930s, the details of his own particular hell and unlikely good fortune in surviving Nazi persecution. He managed – what only too few could – to survive. Reading: André Reichenberg Journalist Peter Michael Lingens will host the event and talk with Martin Katz about his remarkable life.
