PARADISE FOUND, AND LOST
A TRUE STORY OF SURVIVAL
by Eva Krutein
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.
2nd Edition (print only) includes an 8-page section of Historic Photographs.

|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.|
