Press release from: PublishAmerica

Frederick, MD March 27, 2007 -- PublishAmerica is proud to present Veronika: Escape from Poland by Jerry Hoem of Maple Lake, Minnesota.

In January 1945, in the dead of a Polish winter, Malwina Kura and her little girl, Veronika, were forced to escape the Soviet Army’s brutal advance. Their eventual destination was Würzburg, Germany, hardly a bastion of safety. Staying in Poland would have meant death or worse for them and for the remainder of their family.

This true story was gleaned from the desperate mother’s writings and her daughter’s long-suppressed memories. Veronika Werner provided them, translating her mother’s German-language diary and recalling those dark days long put aside.

Veronika lived this story, made the trip in a farm wagon and besieged train, went hungry, endured the cold, and struggled to maintain life itself. She watched personally as German soldiers and civilians suffered along with the invading armies throughout that terrible war.

This is Jerry Hoem’s second book. His first, The Retiree: On to Geezerhood, was a humorous break after retiring from software consulting. Veronika is a story he will not soon forget. He continues to write and enjoy retirement with his wife by a Minnesota lake.

PublishAmerica is the home of 20,000 talented authors. PublishAmerica is a traditional publishing company whose primary goal is to encourage and promote the works of new, previously undiscovered writers. Like more mainstream publishers, PublishAmerica pays its authors advances and royalties, makes its books available in both the United States and Europe through all bookstores, and never charges any fees for its services.
