Cleveland Heights, OH Author Publishes Post-WWII Memoir

April 16, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
"A Legacy of Endurance: Memoirs of My Long Life," a new book by John Prcela, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

The author reveals that "My World War II and especially postwar experiences prompted me to write this book. In the aftermath of WWII, almost my entire Croatian generation was murdered in a long chain of "Death Marches" and extermination camps throughout the then existing Communist Yugoslavia. However, the would-be historians of that period of history have left just the blank pages about my murdered Croatian generation or they have described those victims as murderers! Such travesty of justice and history, prompted me to write this autobiography, although I already wrote several historic books on that horrifying subject."

Mr. Prcela declares "I am a survivor of that peace-time Croatian Holocaust, known as the Bleiburg Tragedy. That is why in these memoirs I want to leave to the future American and Croatian generations my own legacy which I not only lived through so many tragic vicissitudes but also described it in several historic and theological books."

"A Legacy of Endurance: Memoirs of My Long Life" is a 134-page paperback with a retail price of $28.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4809-2613-4. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information, or to request a review copy, please go to our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore at
