Abstract:

Describes Fröhlich's search for the life story of her father, Josef Schleich of Graz, who died in 1949 when she was eight years old. Schleich (a non-Jew) cooperated with the Jewish community of Graz in helping Jews to flee Austria. He provided them with vocational certificates, enabling them to immigrate to the U.S., and then organized clandestine border crossings to Zagreb, where the refugees were taken over by Jewish organizations. Between 1938-41, when he was arrested by the Gestapo, he helped 120,000 Jews escape. After the war he was arrested on charges of having enriched himself at the expense of the Jews. The investigation was cut short by his illness and death. Explains that the refugees' property was lost by theft or confiscation, or expended by Schleich to pay bribes or to cover the expenses of poorer refugees. Fröhlich also discovered that she was Schleich's daughter by his Jewish secretary; he was not able to save her mother from Auschwitz, but saved his daughter by handing her over, soon after birth, to his gentile secretary, who brought her up as her own.
