Christa Wappler was born as an only child into a family knitted tightly together through circumstances never revealed on the evening before Hitler came into power.
Her childhood — from the day she was born till the day she finally could leave the «Iron Curtain» — was a never-ending story of hiding or running away from the hated «Hitler Jugend» and an escaping of the devastating bombs falling down from the sky on the city of Dresden on February 13th, 1945 as well as being chased by the Russian occupants during the aftermath of the war.
The belief in the good of the human being was implanted in her by the overwhelming love she received from her parents, family and friends carrying her through those years.
This is a heart-breaking insight into the personal experiences of a little girl growing up during World War II in East Germany. The author's memories reveal through a child's eyes the effect the war had on herself, her family and her friends and their struggle to survive and adapt to the lack of food, the Hitler Regime and the bombings.
