- An account by a German physician as a prisoner of war in the Soviet Union 1945 - 1949

A German physician's (Friedrich Schmitz-Hertzberg) account as a POW in the Soviet Union was written shortly after his release in 1949 and prior to emigrating to Canada with his English Quaker wife, Kathleen. Now, fifty years later, Kathleen has translated this story. This is a remarkable book by a remarkable man, who relives the wretchedness and despair, with frequent death, but occasional hope, of German soldiers who became POWs. Somehow the author managed to retain not only his integrity as a caring individual, but also his conviction that all would be well in the end. A gripping, sobering and finally uplifting read.
by Friedrich Schmitz-Hertzberg (Author), Kathleen Schmitz-Hertzberg (Translator), Evelyn Schmitz-Hertzberg (Translator)
