Solitary Confinement

Jeremiah Kohl, the only son of Jewish immigrants moved from Berlin to Leipzig where he met Frida, a History professor at Leipzig University.  They lived in Schkeuditz where they raised their three children.

One summer, they went on a transatlantic cruise.  While crossing the Atlantic, The Endurance collided with a sea vessel and quickly sank.  Only Jeremiah survived.

Distraught, he returned to Leipzig, quit his job at the university, sold the house and moved to le Refuge Doré, a remote island where he lives as a solitudinarian to this day.
