About the Author

In 2009 Howard Veisz left a litigation career and went to sea. After a two year sailing voyage around the North Atlantic, Howard and his wife settled on Connecticut's Mystic River, and Howard began work as a shipyard volunteer at the Mystic Seaport maritime museum. There, Gerda III, caught his eye.

With a father and grandparents who barely escaped Nazi Germany, Gerda III's role in rescuing Denmark's Jews drew Howard in. While helping to preserve Gerda III, Howard began a four year mission to reconstruct its history. Howard travelled to Denmark to locate and interview descendants of the people who carried out Gerda III's rescue missions; scoured Danish archives; visited the docks from which Gerda III set out; gathered accounts by leaders of the Gerda III rescue group that had never appeared in English; and assembled translators to uncover the fascinating story that had been buried in those writings for over seventy years.
