In post-World War II Germany, tensions mount in Berlin, the former capital city now in Soviet-controlled territory but still governed in part by the western allies, creating an isolated enclave in a hostile land. Robert Elmer's three-book generational series for kids unfolds against the backdrop of Cold War Berlin--gripping adventures in which three young teens, connected by family, faith, and friendship, struggle to hold on to life and each other, their lives brutally separated by the Berlin Wall.It is 1948, and teenage cousins Erich and Katrina are learning that survival in war-devastated Berlin is a challenge, which becomes even harder when the Soviets blockade West Berlin and the city begins to starve. But the Americans have food, and Erich is determined to get at it, even if it means taking a chance like sneaking onto a U.S. cargo plane.
In 1948 Berlin, Germany, while trying to survive the Russian blockade of the city and also grieving for his father and sister who were killed in the war, thirteen-year-old Erich is befriended by a United States airman.
Berlin, spring 1948. Teenage cousins Erich and Katarina are just trying to survive in a city still devastated by World War 2 when the Soviets blockade the city isolating its citizens-and starving them-behind the Iron Curtain. But the Americans have food, so Erich sneaks inside a U.S. cargo plane...where he is caught by a sympathetic American sergeant who tries to befriend him. Though Erich has plenty of reasons to resent this man, in the end he must decide-should he cling to bitterness or learn to forgive?
