Even with grandparents who emigrated from Eastern Europe to the United States, we were never told any of our history or what it was like for them. This book really clarified things for me! Gave me a picture of what life was like for my great grandparents and grandparents. I had no idea how directly Lithuania was affected by Hitler's actions! And I had no idea how close I came to being a part of that history! Please, take a look into what life was like for many of those who came here . . . and for many of those who never made it.

I discovered that the MOM of a gal pal from our computer club IS Eva Krutein! Our friend shared with us some personal tidbits as well! My Honey is a WWII buff (Germany in particular), so I got this 1st book by Eva for him to enjoy... and he did!

Eva Krutein is a survivor. Her story is horrifying in that it details man's inhumanity to man on all fronts. What is particularly distressing is the cruelty and stupidity practiced by the allies after the war under the guise of an abomination known as the Morgenthau Plan. This book fills in some missing pieces, tells a story that is not covered by the anti-German media in the USA. If I have any criticism it is that Eva is too forgiving of the Red Army atrocities - she makes excuses for it, and does not explain that gang rape, rape, murder, starvation etc., was official government policy of Stalin with the deafening silence of the Americans & Brits. Eva's war is at times funny, often depressing and ultimately uplifting. Read it!

good book, met eva's daughter

I bought and read this book because I am the grandaughter of a refugee from post WWII Dansig. As a very young girl, I used to love to listen to my grandmother tell her stories about her flight from Dansig when the Russians invaded but I was too young to appreciate what she really went through and the true horror of what happened. This book filled in a lot of the holes and gave me a better understanding of my own heritage. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the story of the Germans who were expelled (ethnically clenased) from eastern Europe after Germany surrendered.
Funny duck
I was fasinated and unnerved by the effect of WWII on Germany"s women and children. I had no knowledge of the aftermath of the war on the average citizen of Germany and the East.

Bravo, Eva! Thank you very much for sharing your personal experience of the deadly aftermath of WWII with the world.
Join a young mother and her baby as she flees Danzig (today Gdansk) towards the end of WWII. Through wit, resourcefulness and determination this incredible young woman manages to keep her family together as her husband disappears into a concentration camp and her daughter suffers from starvation. The horrors inflicted by Russian soldiers on innocent women and children shall never be forgotten! Eva presents a compelling argument against war and clearly points out the detrimental yet unspoken fallout of war on women and children. The story was so gripping it kept me up until the last page. I look forward to reading the continuation of this extraordinary woman's life in the other two books of the trilogy ('Paradise Found and Lost' and 'Amerika? America!'. For me an added 'plus' is Eva's musicianship and her love of classical music. Jawohl!
An interesting story showing a side of war rarely documented. A great read, literally could not put it down!
