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. This book is a powerful anti-war statement from a woman's perspective.
And yet, Eva Krutein does both.
This is the biography page for Eva Krutein. Eva Krutein was born in the Free City of Danzig, now Gdansk, Poland. Her parents, owners of a factory for electric appliances, provided their only child with a comfortable upbringing. They nurtured Eva’s fascination with music, which would shape the rest of her life. In 1942, at the age of 21, Eva married Manfred Krutein, who had joined the Navy and received a degree in Naval Architecture. The couple had their first child, daughter Lilo, in 1944 while Manfred was attached to the constantly moving German Navy. This book is a war cry against the glorification of wars, Eva tells us. Book publishers, as well as toy makers and history writers, bear some responsibility for that poisonous glorification. Amador Publishers proudly offers to the world this important antidote.
