This is the story of Karoly, a man whose family protected Katia and other Jewish refugees; Karoly was a teenage boy who was used as human-shield by Romanian 'liberators' in Hungary. After the war, he... More > was sent to prison while Hungary was under communist control. He was committed as a political prisoner for being a member of the Independent Small-holders Party, the communist party’s only serious political rival. Under the communist regime, anyone who held authority in the community was a threat and Karoly was arrested under a trumped up charge. He was sent to Márianosztra where he was given the option of starvation or working as a miner in a forced labour camp. Karoly worked in a coalmine until he escaped the cruel communist regime in 1956.

When Seren was little, before she could read, she would pick up books and pretend to read them. Of course, she was making up the stories as she went along. Here are some of her stories. All funds... More > from this book go to CRIBS International, a UK registered charity (1173021) providing homes in Greece for pregnant refugee women and families with new babies. These families have come from camps and squats where living conditions are squalid and desperate. They have fled from war zones, ISIS and the Taliban. CRIBS rents, furnishes and pays the bills for apartments so that women and their families are able to have a place to call their own and a quiet space to recover, close to medical facilities. Few things can restore dignity to a refugee family like the ability to close their own front door on a flat with walls, a ceiling, a private bathroom and kitchen. More than just accommodation, CRIBS International provides a home where families can keep their newborn babies warm and safe.< Less
