Inhaltsangabe: ?World War II was over and we were alive! We kept pinching ourselves and reassuring each other that it was true. Hard to believe the evil Hitler regime that had terrorized and threatened our lives for 12 years was over? ?My father had stayed faithful to his family, at least to outsiders, clear to the end. After we were bombed out in February 1944 he had hardly spent time with us and never lived with us again. . . . We had had an emigration number for America since the middle thirties and had never been called up. My mother felt now was the time to renew our effort.? These twenty tales tell the story of the author's adventures in America as a young immigrant, a nurse, a wife and mother, and the owner of a small business.
Über den Autor: Elizabeth Weidenbach, the daughter of a Catholic father and a Jewish mother, grew up in Southern Germany surviving Nazi persecution and severe Allied bombing during World War II. After the war she immigrated to Northern California, became a nurse, married and raised a son. In 2007 she published a book of stories about her childhood and war-time experiences - Growing Up and Surviving Germany: 1933-1945 (Wordrunner Press). This is her second book, and it interweaves events in her new homeland with memories of the old one. Despite the hardships she has encountered throughout her life, she has remained positive in her outlook on life and these stories are full of the joy and adventure of adjusting to a new country and a new way of life.
