Neither Red nor Dead. Coming of Age in Former Yugoslavia During and After World War II
The Author, raised in a non-practicing Jewish family, is 12 years old when the Germans occupy former Yugoslavia. His family hides in a small village and eventually joins Tito’s guerrilla. At 14 years of age he is appointed as a military courier, given an outdated Italian gun, and sent to roam alone through mountains, forests, and small villages of Croatia. After the war, just when things start to look better, his father breaks down under the Communist pressure and the author is forced to take refuge again.
