“Retrospect” by Tom Tottis is published

A family saga spanning three generations from Budapest in the 1920s to London in the 1990s

About the Book:

Based on a true life story, RETROSPECT is about human fortitude, chronicling the life of a Hungarian family, eventually reduced to just mother and son, and their struggle during Nazism in the early 1940s, followed by tyrannical Communism, the Hungarian Uprising in 1956, and the aftermath.

From Budapest in the 1920s, to London in the 1990s, this is a family saga of three generations, ravaged by two wars and adverse circumstances.

The book portrays in fine detail the emotional problems a family cannot escape when a disturbed member is causing torment and suffering.

Excerpt from the Book:

“Later that evening, after dinner at Julia’s home with only four members of the Láng family around the table, no one had the courage to ask Julia of Sándor’s reaction to the bad news. Joseph realised he must break the silence.
‘Jutzie, what happened when Sándor learned that you have no dowry?’
Julia dabbed her eyes with her hankie and disclosed what took place after she had confronted Sándor with the unexpected episode.
Hannah cried silently. Julia also in tears, comforted her mother. Comfort for the misfortune that hit them, for the loss of a young son and brother, and for the gallant act of Sándor.”

About the Author:

Shortly before the two-month long siege of Budapest at the turn of 1944-1945, circumstances separated the author, Tom Tottis, at the age of ten, from his parents. He could not help but witness the horrors of the Nazi regime and the actual battle for Budapest.

After that he grew into adulthood enduring the tyranny of the so-called 'socialist' system, leading to the unplanned Hungarian uprising in 1956.

Arriving as a refugee to Great Britain at the age of 21 in December 1956, he set about establishing an existence through hard work. His resolution and his stamina rewarded him with managerial positions in industry for over two decades before he retired at the age of 60.

Tom felt compelled to write this story because of its historical content. Until this day the people in the West know very little of what actually happened before and after 1945 to countries and people who finished up behind the Iron Curtain (apart from the tragedy of the Warsaw ghetto). Individuals who had lived through and experienced those events are now very thin on the ground.
