No Country No Home: A Family’s Exodus and Homecoming
By Trudy Carlson
About the Book
Spanning three generations, this book recounts the story of a real German family who endured WWII, overcame poverty, and embraced an opportunity to come to a new country. Sadly, after surviving one of the most horrific events of world history, generations of decent, hardworking German people were affected by a societal prejudice and distrust for their culture. Nevertheless, their story exemplifies the resilience and perseverance of the human spirit.
A compilation of personal histories, the book recounts the journeys of individual family members, often in their own words, and it proves that the struggles and victories of our ancestors can impact generations to come.
