    There are many, many stories which have surfaced in the aftermath of WWII. This story of a family's struggle for survival, happened after the war ended. Here, the reader follows the Brauer family as it struggles in a world turned upside down and sideways. Bernt Brauer, relates his experiences from the age of eleven. He was raised in a happy, loving, upper middle class family in Berlin. They spent their summers in Silesia from 1932 to 1938. The war changed everything. After the defeat of Germany, the horror of dealing with the cruel, vindictive victors, as they swept through the country looting, raping, and murdering German civilians, is seen through the eyes of young Bernt. This biography will show the reader the finest virtues of humanity. Love of family, great endurance, faith, courage, and an indefatigable optimism are reflected by Bernt and his family as they struggled to build a new life. It is a wonderful fresh perspective, one which does not portray the Germans as a race of... More > evil people, as was promoted through wartime propaganda in the west. This is a book that will enrich the reader.< Less
