review: auf wiedersehen by christa holder ocker

Christa Holder Ocker's memoir of growing up in Germany during World War II provided an interesting perspective. Although her mother did not support Hilter, her father fought for Germany. At one point the family must leave home, but there is still some normalcy for the children as they play with each other and attend school. Ocker details some very lean times as the Allied troops came and her family ended up deciding to leave Germany for America. But there is also much missing from the story. What sort of role did her father have in the war? What happened after they arrived in America?
