This book is a personal account of a German family's journey through 2nd world war. I couldn't put it down. I met 'Kirk' and got talking to him both before and after reading the book. I am totally in awe of his Mother, the main character in their story. You have to read it!! Totally Fascinating, Totally true!!
I wasn't sure about this subject, but since it was written by Max I ordered the book. From the first page I was pulled into the lives of those sorely affected by war. I felt their pain, loss, but also felt the strength and courage it takes to survive.
I myself have come from Koenigsberg and the Book is a true History of the horrible crimes committed by the Russians to the East Prussian People. This book brought back many painful memories. It is well told
