Abstract:

Investigates the multifaceted nature of human identity and follows the experiences of Joseph, who flees Austria in 1938 and pretends to be Jewish before disappearing from London under mysterious circumstances.

Graz, Austria, 1938. Joseph Skizzen's father, pretending to be Jewish, leaves his country for England with his wife and two children to avoid any connection with the Nazis. In London with his family for the duration of the war, he disappears under mysterious circumstances. The family is relocated to a small town in Ohio, where Joseph Skizzen grows up, becomes a decent amateur piano player, and creates as well a fantasy self-- a professor with a fantasy goal: to establish the Inhumanity Museum.
