Published by MartinPrikoszovich
IN THE SUMMER OF 1940, with Hitler’s troops moving through
France to encircle Switzerland, Ludwig von Mises sat beside his
wife Margit on a bus filled with Jews fleeing Europe. To avoid capture,
the bus driver took back roads through the French countryside,
stopping to ask locals if the Germans had been spotted
ahead—reversing and finding alternative routes if they had been.
Mises was two months shy of his fifty-ninth birthday. He was
on the invaders’ list of wanted men. Two years earlier, they had
ransacked his Vienna apartment, confiscating his records, and
freezing his assets. Mises then hoped to be safe in Geneva.
