As a German child, Brigitte Yearman survived World War II, Russian military occupation, the refugee experience, and harsh reconstruction years. Her memoir recounts her journey of survival and how she came to learn about the Holocaust and the frightening realities in her country's recent history.


Later as a young woman, Brigitte met and married an American soldier. They moved to the United States where they raised four daughters. After her husband passed away in 2006, Brigitte moved to Montana to be closer to one of her adult daughters. She still lives in Montana with her partner, Frank, who encouraged her throughout the memoir-writing process.


Anika Hanisch has worked as a freelance writer, ghostwriter, editor, and author coach for over fifteen years.

This is a must read book about the grit and intelligence of a very young German child's foster experience during WWII and Brigitte's poignant post-war refugee experience that lasted for many, many years. Brigitte's enduring quest for family and community along with her clever antics endear us to her resilient and playful spirit and leave us hopeful in the midst of our troubled world.
