What would it mean to venture out of society? To oppose a system clearly more powerful than yourself? To take that decision with full consciousness and conviction, knowing that there is no way back to a "normal life"?
Two stories, separated by almost seven decades, are connected by the same plight.
Emil Richter (1914-2009) escaped from the German Wehrmacht and inadvertently ends up in Serbia, where he hides from the German army for seven years.
André Shepherd (b.1977) escapes from the U.S. military, goes underground for 19 months in a small Bavarian village, then applies for asylum in Germany.
