Over the Ocean
A Wartime Story of Exile and Enduring LoveBook - 2014
"The extraordinary true love story of a couple who were separated during a shameful and fascinating chapter of British history, told by the couple's daughter. In July 1940, Erich Fischer found himself in Liverpool being herded onto a British transport ship bound for Australia, along with 2,500 other men. Conditions on board were horrific, with men locked below decks with overflowing latrines and only seawater to clean themselves. Separated from family, friends and removed from any semblance of a normal life, Erich is unsure whether he will ever see wife again."-- Publisher.
