In 1995 the German Circus Gerd Siemoneit-Barum had its 25th anniversary. Reason enough for a book about the life of the man who created this circus.
Journalist Harald Polenz has written the story of Gerd Siemoneit-Barum's life based on many personal meetings with him, his own reports in newspapers and many shows of Siemoneit's circus; but also based on Siemoneit's own notes.
100 photos, most of them never published before, illustrate the exciting story of Siemoneit's life as a trainer of wild animals and director of his own circus. From the young boy who had to witness the destroying of the Sarrasani building by war bombs to the much acclaimed animal trainer and founder of his own Circus Barum - an exciting life with all ups and downs.
