We received excellent news from author Geza Tatrallyay. This one tells us: « I thought you might wish to know that my book entitled "For the Children", has just been chosen as one of nine books featured on the wiki website Nonfiction Books That Show The Human Side Of Global Conflicts ».
Global tragedies are, unfortunately, all too common. War, natural disaster, and political upheaval can force people out of their homes, split up families, and ruin lives. News coverage of large-scale disasters and global conflicts is often unemotional and fact-driven, making it easy to ignore the impact these events have on real people's lives. Books, however, can move away from cold statistics and shine a spotlight on the day-to-day experiences of individuals living through tough times. This video was made with Ezvid Wikimaker. The book is available at Amazon: www.amazon.com/dp/177076500X.
For the Children, by Geza Tatrallyay
Hungary in 1956, experiencing turmoil and oppression, was separated from the western world by the Iron Curtain. The author details his family's numerous escape attempts and their unbreakable will to free themselves of the Soviet Union's control. At seven years old, he crossed the mine-covered Hungarian border, only to face new challenges of uncertainty and alienation. Despite the many obstacles that stood in their path, Tatrallyay's parents were determined to give their children the best future possible.
