    Memories From Behind the Iron Curtain
    Authored by Inge Raha Govern
    Illustrated and retold by Michael Brinkley

    These are the memories of a child whose eyes see nothing but wonder and excitement. They are not the memories of a worried mother of six who was forced from her home into the icy streets to protect her children from death and starvation. The children's father had been drafted into the war and unwillingly sent to the front lines, leaving the family alone to fend for themselves.

    In a country ravaged by war, she smuggled her children across the border by L├╝beck to escape a hopeless future. She laid her life on the line so that they would live. If it wasn't for her courage they might still be living there today.
