At the age of 19, he decided to escape from East Germany and began a month-long trek to reach West Germany. During this trek, part of his finger was lost but surgically reattached. Kretschmann crossed four borders and three countries (Hungary, Yugoslavia and Austria) with nothing other than his passport and the equivalent of $100 in his possession.
