Review /Description: Nick grew up in the village of Alexanderhausen near Temesvar in the 1940s and 1950s. His book describes his childhood and youth during and after World War II. While Germans in Romania did not experience the same brutality as in Yugoslavia, they nevertheless dealt with great hardship. Nick’s US-born mother was taken to forced labour in Russia and never returned. His father ended up in Canada. Nick completed high school in Temesvar, supported by his grandmother, and eventually immigrated to Canada.
