Abstract

In this volume, the author tells of the disintegration of her hometown of Tilsit, East Prussia. From an idyllic childhood to persecution for her curious new faith and the challenge of saluting Nazi troops while quietly befriending Jews, the author shares poignant memories of coming of age in a world quickly falling apart. Revealing previously unknown details of the lives of women during World War II and the experiences of Mormons in East Prussia and East Germany, this volume adds a unique perspective to the growing collection of World War II memoirs.
