Continual Saga from book 2 'The Darkness'. It describes the family's escape from the Soviets and the short time in a DP camp and finding themselves back at the mercy of the post war German government.

The story begins with Albert drifting in his now familiar dream of his past life as he receives one of the chemo treatments for his new cancer that he developed.

It describes the family’s trials and tribulations trying to reach the US zone and find a DP ‘Displaced Persons’ United Nations camp as far as they could get from the borders of the Russian zone.

It recounts one happy and calm year that he spent in Wiesbaden under the protection of UNRRA and the tragic error that the screening commission made while trying to uncover any collaborators or persons that didn’t fit the classification of DP’s. It further details the arrogance and refusal of the commission to review or admit their error.

The story continues with the expulsion of the family from the protection of the UN and being thrown back to the post war German authority. The German Red Cross trying to reject them as being its responsibility.

In the meantime the family has appealed to the UN to clear their name so that they can be returned to its protection under the Charter.

Meanwhile they are transported via a cattle car to a German make shift ex prisoner of war camp where again they endure lack of food and warmth from the extreme cold of the 1946–47 winter.   

His family finds that the liberation of Europe has not relieved their misery that they anticipated.

 


Excerpt

The woman seeing the two boys coming went through a doorway in the back and
returned with two slices of white bread covered with jam.
Banda jumped forward and grabbed one piece with a large smile on his face
shouting.
“Danke! Danke!”
He shoved it into his mouth and took a bite so big that he barely had enough for a
couple more mouthfuls.
Albert had not budged.
The woman came over to the boy.
“Your brother is very hungry and is happy to get the treat. How come you didn’t
move and are so sad?”
The boy didn’t really listen, but had his eyes fixed on the bread and jam. She
folded the slice and gave it to him. For a moment there was silence. He stared at the
bread like he had done with the food in Dresden not knowing what to do with it.
Then he looked up at the lady.
“D...a...n...k...e. Danke.”
His voice was barely audible. The woman didn’t know what to make of it. She
expected a cheerful and happy child to be thankful for the food, but got a muted thank
you. She turned to Banda who was already done with his piece.
“What’s the matter with your brother? He doesn’t seem to be pleased with what I gave him.”
“Oh! He’s pleased enough, but ever since the hospital he has been acting
strangely. The doctor said he might never be normal.”
