About the Book

This is a story about my life in Germany during World War II and afterwards. It touches a bit of history of Silesia, how we had to move around and why I emigrated to Canada. I never had the urge to return to Germany except for occasional visits. I lived 20 years in Germany, but a lot longer in Canada, my chosen second home.

About the Author

During my high-school years in Germany I always had good marks in essay assignments. As I got older I wanted to leave my memoirs to my children and as soon as I had the time I started writing down what I remembered. This is also explained in my introduction to the book "Crossing Borders". I am now retired and live with my husand in the city of Surrey, a suburb about 45 km east of Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
