Presenter: John Schissler, Author
In this compelling autobiography, World War II survivor, John Schissler Jr., captures what really happens to people in the wicked no man's land of war and rehabilitation, as his family must wade through the crushing tide of WWII, and somehow rise above a violent, dirty flood of complex political and military conflicts in Czech, Hungarian and later East and West German countrysides and villages. Passage: The Making of An American Family lays out in gritty detail that an official end to war in no way meant an end to the struggle of those effect most by it.
