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

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.

2nd Printing, 2015 "Eva's War" is the beginning of a captivating trilogy about one woman's fight for survival and her journey through one of the most turbulent times in world history. The year is 1945, the world is at war. Young Eva must leave her beloved Danzig to escape the Soviets and the harm they would bring to her little family. After hearing rumors about the terrible devastation of the town of Nemmersdorf, Eva makes the heartbreaking decision to leave her parents. It is more than a decision to leave the comforts of home, as the lives of those who remain are also at risk. Without knowing if she will ever find her husband Manfred again, or see her loving parents, Eva sets out on her own through the wreckage of war. Driven by a youthful sense of adventure, Eva takes her baby daughter and boards a ship sailing into the unknown. They barely escape death on numerous occasions. Alone and carrying the full weight of saving her child's life on her shoulders, Eva's only solace is the beautiful music she creates on the piano. Drawing from this love of music, and the wholehearted love she feels for her husband, now lost to her, Eva emerges from the ashes of war a new, stronger woman.

Even with grandparents who emigrated from Eastern Europe to the United States, we were never told any of our history or what it was like for them. This book really clarified things for me! Gave me a picture of what life was like for my great grandparents and grandparents. I had no idea how directly Lithuania was affected by Hitler's actions! And I had no idea how close I came to being a part of that history! Please, take a look into what life was like for many of those who came here . . . and for many of those who never made it.

I discovered that the MOM of a gal pal from our computer club IS Eva Krutein! Our friend shared with us some personal tidbits as well! My Honey is a WWII buff (Germany in particular), so I got this 1st book by Eva for him to enjoy... and he did!

Eva Krutein is a survivor. Her story is horrifying in that it details man's inhumanity to man on all fronts. What is particularly distressing is the cruelty and stupidity practiced by the allies after the war under the guise of an abomination known as the Morgenthau Plan. This book fills in some missing pieces, tells a story that is not covered by the anti-German media in the USA. If I have any criticism it is that Eva is too forgiving of the Red Army atrocities - she makes excuses for it, and does not explain that gang rape, rape, murder, starvation etc., was official government policy of Stalin with the deafening silence of the Americans & Brits. Eva's war is at times funny, often depressing and ultimately uplifting. Read it!

I bought and read this book because I am the grandaughter of a refugee from post WWII Dansig. As a very young girl, I used to love to listen to my grandmother tell her stories about her flight from Dansig when the Russians invaded but I was too young to appreciate what she really went through and the true horror of what happened. This book filled in a lot of the holes and gave me a better understanding of my own heritage. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the story of the Germans who were expelled (ethnically clenased) from eastern Europe after Germany surrendered.

I was fasinated and unnerved by the effect of WWII on Germany"s women and children. I had no knowledge of the aftermath of the war on the average citizen of Germany and the East.

Bravo, Eva! Thank you very much for sharing your personal experience of the deadly aftermath of WWII with the world.
Join a young mother and her baby as she flees Danzig (today Gdansk) towards the end of WWII. Through wit, resourcefulness and determination this incredible young woman manages to keep her family together as her husband disappears into a concentration camp and her daughter suffers from starvation. The horrors inflicted by Russian soldiers on innocent women and children shall never be forgotten! Eva presents a compelling argument against war and clearly points out the detrimental yet unspoken fallout of war on women and children. The story was so gripping it kept me up until the last page. I look forward to reading the continuation of this extraordinary woman's life in the other two books of the trilogy ('Paradise Found and Lost' and 'Amerika? America!'. For me an added 'plus' is Eva's musicianship and her love of classical music. Jawohl!
An interesting story showing a side of war rarely documented. A great read, literally could not put it down!
