I can't forget : a journey through Nazi Germany and WWII
WWII was the bloodiest and most documented war in all history. Yet, with the closing of the 20th century few remaining archives are still opened by witnesses whose voices have not yet been heard. This autobiography is the voice of a German girl of the Nazi period, and growing into adolescence, she describes a 400-mile trek by horse-wagon and on foot to escape the terror of the advancing Soviets. Her narrative offers glimpses of a courageous young girl and takes the reader through the awfulness of war and post-war conditions of homelessness, famine, refugee camps, devastated bombed cities, and the enormous suffering by millions of displaced Germans. The author interweaves her memoir with touching human experiences, moments of painful humor - and a surprise happy ending. The book reveals historic perspectives of WWII not commonly found in school curricula, nor shown in Hollywood docudramas.
