Emigrating to the US to find a better future in America in 1929 Matthias Schmidt’s dream to return to Neisse, his Heimat, as a successful American citizen changed when he saved the life of an American diplomat in Berlin’s Bahnhof. His heroic act established a friendship with the diplomat and three other German emigrants that sustained them through misconceptions of the American dream, the Great Depression, assimilation into American culture, and WW II. However, the war severed contact with Matthias’s family and sent him and his friends on separate paths. To a shipyard to build ships to carry the means of destruction to Germany and his Heimat. Into the US Army to fight in the Pacific after surviving the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Conscription into Germany’s Wehrmacht to invade France, Russia, and fight in the Battle of the Bulge against American forces. And the Nuremberg trials to bring Nazi war criminals to justice. $4.99 on Kindle.
