This book delves into the founding moments in Carvin’s life that matured his formidable character and intuitive ability to relate to people of different backgrounds and to both children and adults of all ages. He survived the Holocaust, and saved his parents, by daring to outwit the Nazis who were all around him in Belgium, France, Austria, and Romania during the deadly years from 1938 to 1945. The compelling story, written with the help of poet and novelist Barry Sheinkopf, includes original art of the period and a gallery of photographs, including a calling card for a Wehrmacht officer’s club Carvin designed in Brussels and an Iron Cross he took from an SS officer whose life he spared while working with the underground in the Romanian countryside. You will not easily forget Mikel Carvin’s extraordinary tale.
