Reflections: On Life in this War-Torn World by Eleonore Thomas

The idyllic life of a child is turned upside down. Political unrest, upheaval, invasion, abduction, and the horrors of war. Reflections. . . On Life in This War-Torn World is the first-hand story of one woman's experience growing up in Europe, surviving the ravages of war, being displaced as a refugee, and immigrating to Canada. It's a story of courage, hope and faith. This book is written as a momento for loved ones-friends and family, and particularly those of the next generation. "Lest we forget."

"The year 1938 brought a lot of anxiety and drastic changes on the political scene. We had a tremendous display of northern lights during the fall of that year. The sky was lit up in red shadows. People were taking this as a bad omen. They interpreted the eerie display as canons moving east and then back west. When in the spring of that year many of the fruit trees displayed odd markings on the leaves it was said to be yet another sign of imminent doom.
I was ten years old at the time . . ."
