Marina, the author writes@

My parents were passionately committed to sustaining the integrity of their faith, the compassionate care for those around them, and an experimental curiosity in maintaining a clear, creative, and positive state of mind. During this time, they lived through the Umsiedlung or resettlement from the Baltic countries to German occupied Poland, their working life there, the flight from the Russians in 1945, the bombardment in Dresden and the trek to southern Germany.

I have added a brief introduction and interspersed stories of my own childhood into the main account. This gave me the opportunity to bring my oldest brother, Andreas, captured on the Eastern Front, into the story.

The Appendix is my motherfs account of her childhood (briefly idyllic) and the 1917 Revolution, often paralleling the experiences of 1939-45. Family pictures complete the book.
