Transit by Anna Seghers

A German man escapes from a Nazi concentration camp during World War II and finds himself stuck in Marseille, France, where he assumes the identity of a deceased author to secure a transit visa. As he navigates the bureaucratic maze of the immigration process, he becomes entangled in the lives of the refugees around him, including a desperate woman searching for her missing husband, the very man he's impersonating. The novel explores themes of identity, displacement, and the human struggle for freedom.
