520    Centuries ago in middle Europe, a coded language appeared,
       scrawled in graffiti and spoken only by people who were 
       wiz (in the know). This hybrid language, dubbed Rotwelsch,
       facilitated survival for people in flight?whether escaping
       persecution or just down on their luck. It was a language 
       of the road associated with vagabonds, travelers, Jews, 
       and thieves that blended words from Yiddish, Hebrew, 
       German, Romani, Czech, and other European languages and 
       was rich in expressions for police, jail, or experiencing 
       trouble, such as being in a pickle. This renegade language
       unsettled those in power, who responded by trying to stamp
       it out, none more vehemently than the Nazis.As a boy, 
       Martin Puchner learned this secret language from his 
       father and uncle. Only as an adult did he discover, 
       through a poisonous 1930s tract on Jewish names buried in 
       the archives of Harvard's Widener Library, that his own 
       grandfather had been a committed Nazi who despised this 
       language of thieves. Interweaving family memoir with an 
       adventurous foray into the mysteries of language, Puchner 
       crafts an entirely original narrative. In a language born 
       of migration and survival, he discovers a witty and 
       resourceful spirit of tolerance that remains essential in 
       our volatile present.
