A Smile in One Eye: A Tear in the Other Free read ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Librarian's Note This is an alternate cover edition for ASIN B01HRZ13O2 The Third Reich is rising The creeping madness in the heart of Germany will soon stain the entire world This is the chilling account of one family as they flee for their lives The Wobsers are prosperous churchgoing patriotic Germans living in a small East Prussian town When Hitler seizes po If you read the blurb then this book does exactly what it says on the tin a look into history with a very personal touch The story is mainly an account from Ralph Webster s father who recalls his life from an early age until the time he set sail for America after the war Peppered in between Ralph s father s story are chapters by Ralph which gives us a recent and overall look into who his father was as a man and how as a family they continue to deal with difficult situations But this book is not only about the life of Ralph s father Gerhard or Jerry his name when he became a naturalized British citizen it s about the whole family sisters aunts uncles in laws cousins and nieces and nephews A story of how uickly and unexpectedly lives can change a story of surviving in a world that suddenly gave Jewish people a ridiculous obstacle course which many did not pass by holding on to their lives When I say ridiculous then I mean ridiculous as in how in the hell was this allowed to even happen in the first place What s wrong with people How do mad men get into positions that affect human lives Makes me spitting madIt goes without saying that because we re dealing with one of the most horrid events in human history this story of a life of many lives will pull on your heartstrings There s nostalgia melancholy and sadness but also survival hope and happiness I became so invested in the journey of the whole family mainly because some really loving detail was added to the story What really makes me despise the historic events is how utterly unfair it all was But you see What shines through the tale by Gerhard and Ralph and what makes me respect this family is how they narrate the events how they continue to address the issue in the most graceful way There is no hateful comments in this story Just an account of what they endured And that That is a show of civility and strengthMy rating 4 It took me a while to get used to the story telling structure and there was a bit of repetition of facts which is duly noted by Gerhard
