I Read - Review of "Abandoned and Forgotten"

This incredible book details the true survival story of a 9 year old girl orphaned in East Prussia, northeast Germany, at the end of WW2. Harrowing action, brilliant and sometimes heart-rendering trauma, and hilarious incidents give the book a fine page turning quality, the writing is also fast paced and of high quality given that English is the author’s second language.

This book comprises a slice of history seldom told from an eye witness to atrocities no less frightening than those engendered by Hitler’s Nazi regime. For those of you who are not yet aware of the history of eastern Germany at the end of WW2 this book is a must.
You won’t forget this book, but you will recommend it to all your friends.
