Product Details

Written by a Local Lyons resident. . .

Franziska was a young girl of just fifteen when Adolf Hitler annexed her homeland, the Sudetenland, to Germany. While she was making plans to study philosophy and art history at the prestigious Karls University in Prague, the tides of war were ominously rolling toward her. Conscripted into the Red Cross as a nurse to tend wounded soldiers, her idyllic life ended, replaced by a fight for survival and a search for love. At the end of the war, she was evicted from her home by a series of inhumane laws meant to punish all Germans for the transgressions of the Nazi regime. From witnessing the losses imposed on civilians during war, she dedicated her life to seeking justice on behalf of others. The next seventy years of her life would play out across three continents and be touched by the Cold War and a civil war. Her past would often collide with her present in the most unlikely places and in unexpected ways. Praise for Chopin Through the Window“ Chopin Through the Window is an enthralling memoir that tells the story of a young Czech woman of German ancestry caught up in the turmoil of World War II.
