Synopsis

In the short span of 17 years, the first 17 years of his life, he was known as Peter Korytowski, Pierre Engglenger and Pierre Boivin, depending on who was hunting him at the time. Nine years old and his world had collapsed. It was 1939 and Hitler had unleashed the Blitzkrieg--bombs were exploding all around him, changing everything. This moment of terror catapulted him into an epic nine-year adventure during the Second World War. He was forced to abandon his home, his family and his childhood. Like a bad dream from which he could not awake, he began an alternate existence--that of a refugee, prey for the Nazis, part of old French nobility, a resistance participant and a rebellious orphan. But most of all, he learned how to be a survivor.

Peter Kory was born in 1931 in Berlin, but left for Belgium with his family to escape the hostile Third Reich. His parents ultimately perished in Auschwitz, after being caught in the Pyrenees, trying to escape Vichy France in 1942. Peter led a clandestine life as the purported scion of an old noble family in its ancestral chateau-an important center of French Resistance activities even though it had been commandeered by the SS to serve as their regimental headquarters. In 1953, he graduated from City College of New York with a degree in architecture, served in the U.S. army and helped transform Cincinnati's Central Business District before joining the New York State Urban Development Corporation. He has taught architecture at the University of Cincinnati and was chairman of a National Transportation Research Board committee on transportation and land development. He lives in Key Biscayne, Florida.
