Set against the backdrop of WW II Germany and spanning thirteen years from 1940 to 1953, SURVIVING THE FATHERLAND tells the true stories of a girl and boy struggling with the terror-filled reality of life in the Third Reich, each embarking on their own dangerous path toward survival, freedom, and ultimately each other.
Based on the author’s own family and anchored in historical facts, this story celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the strength of war children. Author Annette Oppenlander crafts a sweeping saga of family, love, and betrayal against the epic panorama of WW II and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the children’s war.
