Share Article

Love story as Casablanca, but in the Cold War, the historical novel combines two milestones of World History: the Berlin Airlift and the Fall of the Berlin Wall

In these times, when terrorism and insecurity obscure the purpose of democracy, freedom, civil rights and progress, "Eagles Over Berlin" remembers a period of history when the struggle for these values obtained a great victory. Kati Fabian, the Hungarian author living in Los Angeles, launches the distribution of her novel on September 11, 2005. Since she was an eyewitness of the tragic events in New York City in 2001, the heartbreaking moments were the motivation to write the book.

"I was walking on the empty Fifth Avenue, in the city that never sleeps, now only a ghost town. The beautiful weather and still warm sunshine were full of sadness. After the tragedy, slowly, life returned in New York. When some days later, I was standing on the same place, looking to the truck transporting the firemen and steelworkers with exhausted faces, I felt that life took over. 'Life is always taking over,' I thought. Rebirth after destruction, the survival and the strengthening of our basic values, these are the principal elements of the novel."

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.
