These memoirs are a fascinating and informative account of one family's pre-WW2 life in a small village in western Germany, first hand description of how village Jews experienced Kristallnacht, and how they managed to escape Germany in 1940 taking a circuitous route ending in Ecuador.  Should be of value for those interested in the experience of Landjuden (rural Jews of Germany), a compelling first hand description of a narrow escape from Germany and a German exile community in Latin America.  Published by Bert Katz of Boston.
