Russellville, AR (PRWEB) May 24, 2011
Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of The Shadow of the Hakenkreuz by author Ingrid U. Cowan.
This biographical journey takes readers on a voyage into the first half of German history in the twentieth century as observed by a German family. Coming out of WWI, Germans tried to understand their lives apart from a ruling imperial family, adjusting to democracy under the Weimar Republic. Before they understood this new society, they found themselves ensnared by a totally new political system. Freedom for Germany and Europe came at a ghastly price of death and destruction, when the rest of the world helped to throw off the yoke of the Hakenkreuz. These and more are revealed in this stirring memoir, The Shadow of the Hakenkreuz.
The Shadow of the Hakenkreuz is available in trade paperback format. This book will be featured at the 2011 American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in New Orleans, LA on June 24-27, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
About the Author
Ingrid U. Cowan was born in Berlin, Germany, on June 19, 1927, just in time to be a five-year-old girl when Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. She saw her hometown and her country crumble in his attempt to fulfill the promise of a song – he had the youngsters sing, “Today we own Germany – tomorrow the whole wide world!” The author, along with many others, recovered from Hitler’s delusions of grandeur and learned to live normal lives. The author left Berlin at the age of seventeen, just before the Russians invaded Berlin and never went back, but in 1958, she immigrated to the USA.
