As the son of a Czech Jewish mother who spent nine itinerant years during the late '30s and '40s fleeing Hitler's net and finally found a haven in England, courtesy of her second husband, a British army officer whom she met and married in India in 1945, Stoppard must have learned the art of camouflage early on. (Dr. Eugen Straussler, the father of Tom and his older brother, disappeared during his family's movements.)
