Uschi S. Edrich and Inge Pauline Edrich, who were born and raised in Pirmasens, Germany, have completed their new book, "The Story of a Child's Survival of WWII in Nazi Germany": a powerful and stunning account of the dangerous journey to evacuate Germany during the Second World War, and the lasting effects and suffering following the war's conclusion, shared by a survivor who was actually there.
In a preface to their incredible tale, Uschi writes, "My mother, Pauline, is a sweet eighty-year-old woman. She loves to hike, cook, and spend time with her friends and family. She loves to do her daily crossword puzzles to keep her mind sharp. She also enjoys reading the newspaper and watching political shows on TV. Yet despite all her charm, she is still a woman and sometimes even a little girl that's plagued by her firsthand experiences during the Second World War. With all the time that passed, one would think, "Really, seventy-five years later!" Who could believe that? Nevertheless, it is true. Pauline was in Germany from the rise of the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers' Party), commonly known as the Nazis, to its zenith in 1942."
Uschi continues, "Mother continued to tell me stories about the war. Suddenly, I realized that she has a historic treasure in her head, and it was my duty to capture her memories in a book. She recalled most of the events during the war. I decided to be a good daughter and encourage my mom to tell me the entire story. Once she started to tell her story, we both realized that there are many recognized victims of the Second World War, the German mothers and children left behind to fight for daily survival included."
