Overview
ELEANOR'S STORY is the dramatic memoir of Eleanor Ramrath Garner's youth, growing up as an American caught in World War II Berlin. It is a story of trying to maintain stability, hope, and identity in a world of terror and contrasts. During the Great Depression, Eleanor's family moves to Germany, where her father has been offered a good job. But war breaks out as her family is crossing the Atlantic, and they cannot return to the United States. Eleanor tries to maintain her American identity as she feels herself pulled into the turbulent life roiling around her. She fervently hopes for an Allied victory, yet for years she must try to survive the Allied bombs shattering her neighborhood. This compelling story immerses us in the daily struggles of surviving World War II as a civilian. It puts a very human face on the horrors of war and helps us understand that each casualty of war is a person, not a number.- Featuring a new Author's Note
