9781438946740: The Long Escape

A ten year old and his family embark on a heroic escape from the former East Bloc Communist country of Czechoslovakia to seek a new life in the West free of oppression. Faced with unforeseen perils, heavily armored borders, three separate cultural changes, and never knowing what the next day brings, a family of four leave their entire lives behind and thrust themselves into situations with potentially devastating outcomes. Join the Rehacek family as they struggle during a journey across multiple border crossings between Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Austria, and Germany as they seek freedom and prosperity. Just imagine yourself standing in front of an open field covered with tall barbed wire fences, machinegun operated control towers, heavily armored guards with dogs, and hidden mine fields and you must somehow cross to the other side with a wife, a ten year old, and a six year old. Once you manage to cross from the Communist ruled Iron Curtain to the West alive and uninjured you have to live in a country that has a different culture, different customs, and everyone speaks a different language. As you struggle along the political channels of immigration you wonder if the next day you and your family will have a bed to sleep upon and enough food to eat.
