Walnut Creek, California March 14, 2013 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "Long Road to Freedom," a new book by Teodora Prasek, has been released RoseDog Books.
Teodora Prasek, age thirteen, had to grow up overnight when World War II started and the maniac Hitler's army attacked and occupied the kingdom of Yugoslavia. Part of it, Slovenia, bordering on Austria, was first and worst. A small, beautiful, and proud country, Slovenia survived ages of foreign rulers until World War I and was incorporated into the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Then, unceasing bloodshed by the pitiless German tyrants the horrible Hitler's hatred of Slavs, the torture and killings of innocent people upon his order.
Prasek runs for her life when high-school kids were being arrested, hides for one month, joins the underground, gets caught, survives prison and concentration camp, only to return home to vicious Communism. Running for her life again, she managed to escape over mountains to Italy, gets a job in the U. S. Army, and is told by the Commanding General to write a book.
