If you have heard about all the controversy surrounding George Soros, this is an excellent book to read about the time when he was growing up. We may think that George was a child of privilege and grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth. I won't say he didn't screw over a lot of people but to understand his roots, you need to read his father's biography. It is really a great insight. I rated it 4 stars as it is not a book I would read again but I liked it and it gave me insight I never knew.

The book is mainly just a series of events in which (in most cases) the main character succeeded in saving Hungarian Jews from being killed by the Nazis during the last year of the holocaust, and it is a page-turner. Tivadar's seemed to actually enjoy finding ways to get forged documents to save people and was wildly successful. It was heartening to know that many non-Jewish Hungarians were sympathizers and helped them. I also found it very interesting what sorts of documents people needed to have on them, just in case they were stopped in the street, to prove they weren't Jews. And I will never forget one thing Tivadar believed and lived by: that in such terrible times, it is dangerous to let oneself get put in a position of leadership. (He chose to live small and "under the radar," and it saved him and a lot of people that took his advice.) Some Jews let the Nazis use them to represent their community--in a sense, to do the Nazis dirty work of deciding people's fates, thinking that that way they could save themselves and their families, and perhaps they had good motives of wanting to help their fellow Jews in general--but in the end, those expectations were betrayed.

It's WWII, the Nazis have invaded Hungary, and Hungarian Jewish attorney Tivadar Soros has to somehow keep his wife and sons (including future billionaire George) safe. While others cling to bygone comforts, status, rules and norms that will betray them, Soros understands that the former order is gone and he must stay nimble and alert to keep his loved ones away from firing squads and out of the death camps.

The style is simple, straightforward, and intimate. You get the feeling of a man thinking on his feet in the middle of danger--finding solutions and then abruptly having to abort them and find something new. Even better, you hear the morals and principals that Tivadar relied on to get through the danger.

I liked this book a lot. It's a good read and I think of Tivadar's guidelines in my own tough decisions in life.

Masquerade is the true story of how Tivadar Soros, a Jewish lawyer from Budapest obtained false identities for himself, his wife, mother-in-law, and his two sons. They used these false papers from about April of 1944 until early 1945. I was very surprised at this book, it wasn't exactly what I thought it would be. Actually, I thought the book was fantastic. The way the author thought about his and his families survival was just about the opposite of much I have read in surviving the Holocaust. His main idea was not going with the crowd, but to blend in with the crowd. Being a lawyer, the author also had some very good ideas on how to obtain false identities, how police routine would work, he had good contacts, and so on. I think it also helped because the author seemed like a bit of an actor, as many lawyers seem to be. Not a bad thing to be in surviving a world turned completely upside down. One of the things I liked the most, was that the book was written with a real sense of humor. I very much enjoyed reading a book with a very different way of looking at things, which is why I gave it five stars.

A remarkable story that all should read.
Mr Soros, the father of George, created false identities for he and his family. His practical approach to life allowed them to survive the Holocaust. This book helped me to look at life in a totally different perspective, and not many books have done that.
The style of writing is straight forward. The tale remarkable.
The book made me want to have lunch with Tivadar.
The Sphinx of Driz
A most enjoyable book of memory from a truly remarkable man with a strong love for his family. There is much humor, action, and resilience without too much introspection or socialized morality. This book is about staying invisible enough to survive as a jew in Nazi occupied Hungary without losing your basic humanity to a righteous and easily reciprocated hate. Best non-fiction book I've read in years.

I still wonder whether I would have survived, for how long and under what circumstances, had I been in the position of this family and so many others during the Nazi era. I very much doubt I would have possessed the courage of this or any other family or person. But, as the book indicates, people rise to extraordinary levels when family protection and even survival is at stake. Of course, being a lawyer with substantial financial support (if you can hold on to it) plays an important role in this family's survival, but should in no way negate the extraordinary courage and skills were used to save them from what might have seemed the inevitable fate of so many.
Not quite the historical detail I was hoping for but still an interesting read providing insight into a philosophy of life as shaped by an overwhelming desire to survive. Gives you a glimpse of how the younger Mr. Soros life must have been shaped.
