East of the Oder : a German childhood under the Nazis and Soviets / Luise Urban
- Stroud : Spellmount, 2013
Luise Urban was born into a world about to be turned upside down. Her family lived east of the river Oder, and as the Third Reich crumbled and the Soviet Red Army advanced, she was one of 15 million Germans trapped in a war zone during the terrible winter of 1945. Weakened by starvation and forced to flee their home, it was only the bravery and ingenuity of Luise's mother that saved the family from total destruction. In 'East of the Oder', Luise relives that harrowing time, written in memory of her mother, to whom she owes her life.
