The rise and fall of the master tailor Josef Knilli in Graz.
Josef Knilli, the author's uncle, was the main actor in the Aryanisation of the Spielmann clothing store in Graz. He rose from being a small tailor in Fehring to becoming a big dress shop owner. Sometimes for, sometimes against the Nazis. He sat in prison for many years, but had no regrets. He died undefeated, accompanied by Mozart's "Don Giovanni".
