The Book

Undiscovered for decades

The manuscript of Scheyer’s dramatic survivor’s account, Asylum (original German title ‘Ein Überlebender’), thought to have been destroyed, was discovered fortuitously by the sons of Scheyer’s stepson Konrad Singer in the process of the latter’s house move in the 2000s. The text was translated, and published with notes and epilogue based on his further research, by P.N. Singer, Scheyer’s step-grandson, in January 2016. It is published in the UK by Profile Books, with a US edition (Little, Brown), as well as German, French, Italian and Spanish editions, planned for 2016.
