Where in the world is HRASTOVAC??

From: "Rosina Schmidt"
Subject: [BANAT-L] Book "Abandoned and Forgotten" by Evelyne Tannehill

Hello Donauschwaben;

Evelyne Tannehill's book "Abandoned and Forgotten, An Orphan Girl's Tale of Survival During World War II' deals with many of those questions we have been discussing in the recent weeks. It is the best book written in English I have read so far on that topic and I warmly recommend it to anyone curious enough to have an insider 'window opening' into that part of history.

The first part of the setting was in East Prussia, but it could have been anywhere in the DS lands.

ISBN-13: 978-1-58736-693-2 published in 2006. Hopefully most of the libraries have it.


From the Danube Swabian village of HRASTOVAC, also known under its German name of EICHENDORF
