According to Wikipedia, Hans Gerhard Fürth or Hans G. Furth was a Professor emeritus in the Faculty of Psychology of the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Early life in Europe Hans Gerhard Fürth was born to Jewish parents, Hugo and Jula Fürth, in Austria and baptized into the Catholic Church at the age of 16. As a child, he was trained in classical piano and active in Austrian Boy Scouts. Shortly after the 1938 Anschluss of Austria into Germany, Furth fled the Nazis; first to Croatia, as a dependent of his mother who had married an elderly Croatian acquaintance to gain entry into that country. Upon achieving the age of majority, Fürth would have been evicted from Croatia, so he obtained a visa to travel to Belgium. En route, he jumped off his train in Switzerland, and lived illegally with a Swiss family. From Switzerland, he obtained a visa to travel to the United Kingdom by volunteering to work in the Australian outback. After arriving in England, he abandoned the Australian venture, and lived with a professor of music. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London in 1940 hoping to become a concert pianist and, after being interned as an enemy alien, performed at internment camps for Jewish refugees in various locations throughout Britain , as well as Hutchinson Camp on the Isle of Man. He spent the next decade as a monk in the Carthusian order and then emigrated to North America.
