Solomon Northup left home in 1841 as a free black man. He wanted to go and work in New York City for a few days, see the city, and then return home to his wife and children. But this was the start of a terrible journey for Solomon: a journey into kidnap and slavery, which did not end for twelve years. His kidnappers took him in chains to the cotton and sugar plantations of the southern states, far from his family. Every day brought more cruelty and pain, but Solomon never stopped thinking of ways to escape. This is the true story of his life.

Über den Autor Northup, Solomon

Solomon Northup, geboren 1807 in New York, war ein freier Bürger, bis er verschleppt und in die Sklaverei verkauft wurde. Erst zwölf Jahre später konnte er seine Freiheit wieder erlangen und schrieb noch im selben Jahr seine Memoiren. Um den Abolitionismus, eine Bewegung zur Abschaffung der Sklaverei, zu unterstützen, hielt er Vorträge über seine Erfahrungen und das Leben als Sklave. Ort und Datum seines Todes sind nicht bekannt.
