"World War II was over and we were alive! We kept pinching ourselves and reassuring each other that it was true. Hard to believe the evil Hitler regime that had terrorized and threatened our lives for 12 years was over...
"My father had stayed faithful to his family, at least to outsiders, clear to the end. After we were bombed out in February 1944 he had hardly spent time with us and never lived with us again. . . . We had had an emigration number for America since the middle thirties and had never been called up. My mother felt now was the time to renew our effort."
These twenty tales tell the story of the author's adventures in America as a young immigrant, a nurse, a wife and mother, and the owner of a small business.
