Katherine Ritchie, a nurse deeply interested in World War II and the effects it had on her family, has completed her new book "My Name Is Jozef Bednarz: Memoir Of A WWII POW": a gripping account largely revolving around--and told from the perspective of--her Polish father who spent time in prison and concentration camps during World War II.

Katherine shares, “When I started to interview Dad, I tried using a tape recorder to do the interviewing, but he seemed agitated and uncomfortable. I grew concerned he might quit talking to me altogether, so I stopped taping his words and did not try to record our conversations again. I sensed that having a machine record his words was triggering the problem he had with paranoia. Eventually, I hoped the scraps of paper used to hold the words of my dad’s life story would become an epic account of his survival during a pivotal time in the history of the world. This has always been the goal of my persistence.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Ritchie's personal and insightful account never fails to shy away from "messy details." Never romanticizing her or her father's life, she describes good times and bad times, and her even-keeled approach enriches the narrative.

Whether it be interpersonal family conflict, disagreement on the scope and purposes of World War II, or personal regret, the author never dives deep into her family's history while regaling her father's beautifully long and winding tale from his own perspective.

Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase "My Name Is Jozef Bednarz: Memoir Of A WWII POW" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
