Bruno Schwebel - As Luck Would Have It. My Exile in France and Mexico . Recollections and Stories
Bruno Schwebel was ten years old when his family escaped from Vienna in 1938 to seek refuge from Nazi persecution in Paris. After various sojourns in France, they fled to Lisbon and then to Casablanca and eventually reached Mexico City in 1942. A man of many talents, Mr. Schwebel worked as an electrical engineer, a camera man and advanced to the position of technical director of Mexico City's largest TV station. He also became an actor, folk musician, painter, and a chess champion. An inveterate traveler and hiker, he explored his new home country on many trips. In 1976 he started publishing his stories in Spanish and then in German translations. His recollections consist of a chronological narrative and ten character portraits. They tell the poignant story of a remarkable life and its many encounters with alert curiosity, calm precision and a wise touch of humor.
