I am weeping for the lost land of Königsberg. Thoroughly enjoyed this book which gave a true insight into the suffering of the Germans during and after the war and an unbiased account of the treatment of the single mother and her children by the British, American and Soviet authorities. I would have liked to have seen photographs of the family, but I bought the Kindle version - I'm not sure whether photographs were included in the paperback version.
The only factor I wish was made clear was that for most refugees, Britain and America, to their shame, forcibly repatriated them to the east only for them to face harsh treatment or sent to gulags in Siberia. The book made it seem very easy for anyone who wished to stay in the west, but this was not true.
