About this product
- DescriptionThe first part of the book reflects the context of life within the totalitarian systems of Communism and Nazism. The author witnessed the mass deportations under Communism and mass executions of Jews, kwn as the Holocaust, and other tragic events during WWII, which left their mark on our consciousness. The memoir is a revealing story of the life of deportees, who spent two years in a camp working with the prisoners of war and then, after their liberation by the American Army, spent four years in Displaced Persons Camps. These life experiences constituted t only a period of various limitations, but also a time of psychological and intellectual development. The book conveys many details of those experiences and provides an insight into the complexities and a joyful success in the free society in the U.S.A.
