Synopsis: My Life in Fear is a true story of my life, starting in Post-World War II in Germany and going forward through my eighteenth birthday. My eighteenth birthday was the start of my new life. Through the pages in my book, I hope you will gain a good understanding of the condition Germany was in during the depression. Times were extremely tough back then and I’m sure some could relate. I feel my story needs to be shared because I am a fortunate survivor of a terrible childhood filled with abuse, fear, and most of all neglect. There’s that old saying: “You Learn What You Live.” I learned never to be like my parents. If it weren’t for the love of my paternal grandmother, I would not have survived it all. She was the most kind-hearted person I knew and she too had to live her life in fear.
About the Author: Gertrude Kaufmann had to leave Germany in 1966 and came to America on a working visa, in search of a new life. She now lives in Connecticut with her second husband, and two children, Patrick and Rachel, and two dogs, Brandy and Windsor Locks.
