Born in London, William Mayer grew up in Orizaba, Veracruz, where his father ran two cigar factories. A commercial representative who traveled the country before, during and after the Mexican Revolution, Rotary, highway promoter, film producer and businessman broken by the crisis of 1929, William Mayer was also the decisive promoter of the founding of the Israeli Central Committee of Mexico and the safe conduct of countless Jews who, thanks to their efforts and friendship with the German Consul in Veracruz, were able to land and settle in our country. His personal memoirs, letters and newspaper articles, woven into a chronicle by his son Roberto, who rediscovers in his pages his own father, provide the reader with first-person access to five crucial decades of the twentieth century.
