More > noticed had expired months before, and remained in Cuba for three years before joining relatives in the United States.

The result is a vivid look at a world witnessed by a Jewish child under Hitler, a European refugee in Cuba, an American soldier occupying his native German soil, and ultimately an adult, grandfather, and survivor.< Less
