'Life is a Circus: Das leben ist ein Zirkus by Hugh Schmitt
Hugh Schmitt was born in Hamburg, Germany on February 26, 1938, growing up under the dictatorship of Adolph Hitler and a war torn country. Running to bomb shelters, losing a house and possessions to bombs, and traveling Europe and abroad with his parents in the Circus Hagenbeck, he lived a whole lifetime of adventures in just his first twelve years. His father, Hugo Schmitt, was a world famous elephant trainer. This first book ends with an unbelievable journey to the now defunct Ellis Island in New York City harbor in full view of Lady Liberty.
