A true story of a Jewish child in an Italian internment camp under
Fascist rule, and the blossoming love between his mother and a
Eric Lamet was born Erich Lifschutz on May 27, 1930, into an
upper-middle-class Jewish family. Both his parents, born in Poland,
moved to Vienna before the first Great War.
On March 18, 1938, five days after the Anschluss, when German
troops had marched into Vienna, Lamet's family fled to Italy, where
he spent most of the next twelve years. After World War II ended,
Lamet settled in Naples with his family. He finished high school in
that city and studied Engineering at the University of Naples.
Fluent in German, Italian, English, Spanish, and Yiddish, Lamet
served as an interpreter for the U.S. State. Department and taught
Italian for several years. Lamet has studied piano and voice and,
to this day, enjoys performing Neapolitan songs.
