Paul was born in Álmosd, Hungary in 1935. His father was American—born in New York City—and he never accepted Hungarian citizenship. Paul's family was protected by the Swiss Embassy so they were put in a separate house from the rest of the ghetto. His mother died of an unknown disease and he and his siblings were sent to an orphanage. Paul was adopted by a Jewish family who lived in Stockholm. He joined the Israeli Army in 1952 and got to the U.S. in '59. He tells of some racial problems he encountered when he was in the service, and of his experiences when he was sent to Viet Nam and how people treated him when he came back to the U.S. Paul also talks of his wife and things regarding their differences in religion.
