About the Book In a 1998 visit to Germany my Mother was told, "It´s by way of Eddie that we were to be fed." Eddie, my Dad, served in the Canadian Occupation Force in Germany for one year following the Second World War. My Mom was back home in Saskatchewan caring for their three little sons. Soon after arriving in enemy territory, Eddie met ten-year-old Johann. Unlike so many others, Dad didn´t view Johann as a Nazi. He was just a starving little boy. This story illustrates how one man and one family rose above the vile hatred caused by war. It highlights the best of humanity - even between enemies.
