A memoir of a young girl of wealth and privilege, growing up in an idyllic village in Silesia, during the rise of the Third Reich. When the Nazis were crushed and the Russians overwhelmed the town, her life changed to one of poverty, deprivation, and fear. Knott describes how her family was uprooted and forcefully relocated from town to town…enduring hunger, rape, and extreme hardship, before finally building a new life in America. A poignant, important historical experience; another view of the tragedies endured by civilians during WWII.
