About the book

Vera’s Story is a deeply personal one.

It is the powerful tale of a Czech family caught up in the storm of history, from the aftermath of World War I through the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Seventy-five years later, their wounds have healed, but the scars that remain compel the telling of this story of hope, courage, and perseverance.
