"Growing up as an enemy of the Third Reich I was not aware of the impact it would have on my world.

She fights back to normalcy and adulthood drawn from situation to situation, some stormy, into a new life.

I was born in Berlin Germany and in 1945 was smuggled by a Red Cross convoy through the Russian lines into the West and the Netherlands, the country of my nationality. My accent is still giving me away. I am asked about my life and when I just hint at where and how I had I lived I am being encouraged to put my experiences on paper. Since 1978 I have lived in Chestertown on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. A recent WCALL writing course at Washington College provided a basis and I started to write. The photos my mother took are treasured mementoes. I have used them liberally throughout the text.
