Produktbeschreibung

“My story aims to satisfy British interest in the history of Central and Eastern Europe and gives the views of people directly involved in and affected by these events. Inevitably it touches on matters such as who was to blame for starting the First World War and the question of the United Kingdom joining a ‘United Europe’. These are controversial subjects and my views may prove to be somewhat uncomfortable reading for some. However, my hope is that readers will take an objective interest in the views of people who in 1945, with the consent of the Allied Powers, were forced to leave their country, home and property. On a personal note, I regret that there seems little hope in the United Kingdom, if faced with a choice between closer relations with the United States or Europe, of choosing to join a ‘European Commonwealth’ of nations with a common currency. This is particularly unfortunate at this present time which sees a resurgence in historical tensions and rivalries between individual European states.” (Alfred Schopf, 1922–2006)
