Synopsis

All my books are recounts of true happenings. The series: The Century Before 2000 focuses on the suffering of certain women and children of that era. Heroines, of the last Century, selected from specifc strata in society, portray normal everyday life and trials and tribulations during wartimes. For some plights began before recorded dates of political conflicts and continued in the aftermath. KATH(E)RINA realistically re-enacts in chronological order what it was like when giant-sized bombs rained from the the sky and upon impact shook or collapsed buildings, worse... trapped women, children and the aging beneath. Sometimes other women came to their rescue, sometimes they couldn´t. Seldom the rescuers were trained men in their prime, (then serving in the military), they were mainly women; often mothers and children or men too old or too young for the armed services. All events in KATH(E)RINA actually took place, only her name is fictitious. I might point out that geographical orientation matter little when terror, pain, homelessness, hunger and depravation reign. What happened in Germany happened in England, in Poland, to some degree throughout Europe and Asia and to this day violence still reigns in many parts of the world. Apparently Earth’s inhabitants still haven’t learned yet to live peacefully on our beautiful but rapidly shrinking Planet.
