Dieter Marcuse chronicles his journey from war-torn Germany to a better life in America in his new memoir, “A Dream Come True: Growing up in Germany, Growing old in the USA” (published by AuthorHouse).

Marcuse gives both a personal history and historical record of the events in Germany from his birth in 1929 through 1957, when he left the country in search of the American Dream. In spite of the difficult times of his childhood living under Nazi rule, Marcuse did manage to have some fun.

As a young boy, Marcuse was a slow learner and struggled in school. Then, at age 18, he had a kind of awakening and grew into himself. His first love ended in tragedy when he discovered that he could not live with a girl with mental problems. In spite of this, he studied at a university in Berlin and became a physicist.

He used a chance encounter with American scientists to apply for a job in the United States at world-famous Bell Laboratories. There, he flourished, “had a wonderful life, married a wonderful girl and lived happily ever after,” he writes.
