DAS KRIEGSBEIL 45
21. January 1945 – My Mother was eight years old at the time.
In minus 20° Celsius and deep snow she starts to flea from the Russians, with her mother and her four little siblings…
The Author deals with the forced displacement and wartime atrocities inflicted on the German population, a theme that was a taboo for the German Left.
A one year long odyssey through the horrors of war and postwar turmoil begins.
A merciless and very personal view on the end of the Second World War and the the guilt of the Nazis. Never again fascism!
