ENGLEWOOD, N.J. — Englewood resident Renate Stoever will discuss her book "Escape from Plauen" at the Englewood Public Library on Tuesday, Oct. 20.
In this new work, Stoever discusses her childhood in Germany during World War II, her later escape to West Germany, and her eventual immigration to America.
The novel is a first-hand account of life in the German city of Plauen before Hitler’s defeat at Stalingrad that marked the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany, through the destruction caused by the wrath of the Soviet Army.
Caught between Stalin’s advancing Communist Army in the East and the Allies march from the West, the women, children, and elderly of Germany had no place to hide long after the collapse of the Wehrmacht.
The book illustrates how despite the depravities of war she used her faith to triumph against all odds endures.
The event begins at 7:15 p.m. at Englewood Public Library, 31 Engle St, Englewood.
