Helene-True Story of a German Girl's Resilience Growing Up During World War II by Helga Long and Helene Witzmann
Imagine living in a time when planes overhead meant something far more terrifying than travel. Picture yourself on a train, cowering in fear as bombs explode around you. Imagine the sound of glass shattering and screams permeating smoke-filled air as you wait for the end you know is coming. From food rations to air raids, Helene paints a tale of what life was like for German citizens during World War II. Based on recordings from Helene Witzmann translated by her daughter, Helga Long, this book offers a unique perspective on history detailing World War II from a German point of view.
