When America is preparing to celebrate the national holiday, the world is making a stop to think about democracy and freedom. These values are old of three thousand years and came to us through the darkness of time shining through centuries. Kati Fabian, a new author from Hungary and living in Los Angeles, California for only four years, elected this sunny holiday to inform about the upcoming publication of her novel "Eagles Over Berlin Â Flight for Love and Freedom." The historical novel presents the events of the Berlin Airlift in the form of a love story.
In these days of controversy it is good to remember the aftermath of World War II. The Americans arrived in Berlin in 1945 as enemies. Three years later they became friends, allies, guardian of the freedom, and the hope of two and half million Berliners by implementing a massive airlift to break the blockade of the Soviet Army and through it to stop the red expansionism. Without the Americans, the map of Europe would be different today.
In war-torn Germany, John, American pilot, and Esther, holocaust survivor, meet and fall in love in the turmoil of history. From the Oval Office in Washington, to Stalin's study in Moscow, from elegant Paris to blockaded Berlin, we follow the events of the blockade. Through Soviet harassments in the air corridors, plane crashes in Soviet territory and their ultimate sacrifice we experience the heroism of the pilots. Despite cold, hunger and darkness, the people of Berlin hold out against hostilities. Soviet spies and secret negotiations lead to the lifting of the blockade, but the victory tragically separates John and Esther. By a twist of destiny, they will meet again forty years later, in 1989. When the Berlin Wall comes down, they will understand the purpose of their lives.
Growing up in the shadows of communism, Kati Fabian learned to cherish democracy and freedom. "Only those are dead who are forgotten" she wrote while remembering of all those who share her passionate and enthusiastic conviction.
