Danzig, a Free City between the Great Wars, then seized by Hitler in 1939, is threatened by Soviet troops as Eva Krutein flees with her daughter in January, 1945. It is the beginning of a harrowing year of privation, defeat, moral quandaries, growth and, finally, healing.
A compelling account of the hardships and horrors of war...leavened by Krutein's humanity and her love of music.
| Over 20 million people are now classified as refugees by the UN High Commission on Refugees, and additional millions are internally displaced or stateless. Throughout the world, borders and identities of nations have been changing for decades, and anti-immigrant sentiment has heightened on every continent. EVA'S WAR is more timely than ever for Americans as we remember that we
are a nation of immigrants, and these survivors have much to teach us about resilience and healing.
|An excellent, provocative and important book.|
|—Laurel Speer, poet and critic|
|A marvelously moving and often humorous real-life story... sad revelations, painful memories, excruciating experiences are tempered by compassion, love and a powerful, contagious optimism. Music permeates this tale.|

|Her novel-like presentation makes for exciting reading. The story of German refugees has not been well covered, so this should find a place in academic and public libraries.|
