A eyewitness novel over refugee after the second world war.

World War II deportations, expulsions and displacements.

What Happend

In January 1945,when I am eight years old, I have to leave, together with my mother and grandmother, the protection of our family farm in Westprussia (now Poland) to flee from the advancing Red Army. The weeks and months that follow my family and I, together with some two million other ethnic Germans, have to endure extreme hardship as the result of Hitler's megalomania. Finally we are able to escape; ending up in war torn Berlin, as unwelcomed refugees.
