His thrilling memoirs cover a childhood spent in the pre-war Yugoslavia, growing up as the clouds of war getheres over Europe. Then the Germans invade, everything changes. The family moves gypsy-like from one town to another ending in Bela Crkva on the Rumanian border in 1942. There he enters a Russian Cadet School. His father enlists in a White Russian Army. His mother dies and he left to face the unknown. After many harrowing episode and near-death experiences, he survives the war. Then four years of being moved from one displace persons camp in Austria to another, until migrating to Australia as an assisted migrant in 1949 and having his first square meal in 10 years!
