About the book

     Helen H. Buchholtz sets the stage for this gripping personal account of her harrowing experiences in wartime Germany during and immediately after the Allied effort to rid the world of the Nazi scourge in her first book, American Hamburger- An American Girl in Nazi Germany.
     In a scenario similar to that which Americans are becoming only too acutely aware of, she recounts the painful disruptions of daily routine resulting from the total destruction of the city of Hamburg by a ruthless bombing campaign. The horrendous terrorist attacks of 9/11 brought into the author’s vivid recall the emotions of fear, helplessness, and despair she endured while suffering the consequences of being bombed upon by her own countrymen. The experiences which Helen shares with her readers are particularly apropos in today’s global situation, and offer valuable personal insights into the world of victims of war and its aftermath.
     More importantly, her descriptions of life following the cessation of hostilities provide the reader with revealing accounts of the even greater problems of survival in a post war period of no-man’s land and foreign occupation.


“I believe that this book ought to be required reading for every college or high school library or German department. Not only is it an interesting story, it contains a lot of historical and cultural information that will deepen the knowledge of the German language.” 

Dr. Bernice Strand Reid- National President, National League of American Pen Women
“I was totally spell-bound by your story and the fascinating perspective you conveyed. Your book should be required reading for all German and American students. I could not put the book down.”
Millicent Barimo- President, Board of Directors, Central Florida Lyric Opera

“I have read both of Helen Buchholtz’s books. Her story about being an American trapped in Nazi Germany, and how miserable it was long after the war ended, hit me to my very core. Her courage and survival instincts alone make these books a must read because of what you learn about the resilience of the human spirit. From the history standpoint, your eyes are opened and you wonder... is war ever the solution when it creates so much human suffering and a cauldron of hatred? I wish every American would read this book.” 

      Carol M. Welsh, Author/Speaker, Pres. National League of American Pen Women, St. Augustine, FL branch.
