Description
Growing up in war-torn Germany, spending over two years in a Russian prison camp can ruin a life or make it stronger. Fred Losch chose to become a stronger person and to make the most of his life. Fred left his homeland, became an American citizen, traveled the world, learned new things daily, and loved his family. He wrote the words of his life so that others might see the misery of war and strive toward understanding and cooperation.
