A Heritage Disappeared ! Where did it go?
The link above takes you to the book's website. Several reviews are presented, as is a link to a 20 minute audio interview by DearMYRTLE's Family History Hour. What is Frank's book about? It is difficult to categorize. Set as a memoir that overcomes bi-cultural hurdles, this book embraces elements of travel, adventure, history, customs, culture, exploration, geography, politics (past, present, future), ethnic cleansing, deportation, genealogy, heritage, childhood memories, Human Rights, Jungian synchronicity, (Whew!) and humor. All this unfolds in a land that no longer exists.
Join Frank on his trip as he discovers "the missing piece of his heritage puzzle" and relates its unique, modern connection to the events of World War II, Adolf Hitler, Nazi Germany, Edward Benes, Neville Chamberlain, Benito Mussolini, Edward Daladier, the Munich Agreement (1938), and Longfellow's Evangeline (1755). See why Frank's story is still relevant in today's European Union (EU).
