1991-In the foothills of Tasmania's Mount Wellington a Vietnam veteran, Joe Gilewicz is shot dead by a special police group. Their version is simple: he shot at us, we shot back. A ballistics cop enters the killing zone and plants evidence to shore up the official police line'Žbut he can't go on with it. He confesses and expects prison.The dead man is a comrade in arms. Born in a Nazi concentration camp, Stan Hanuszewicz is a two-tour Vietnam Vet. The dead soldier's parents, holocaust survivors too. They met behind the wire in a death camp.'I cannot watch when they pull my fingernails out,' she tells the author.'Swim from Gestapo' her friend calls as they make a bid for freedom in icy waters near the camp. 'Disquiet' is an unedited compilation of formal court statements and recorded family anecdote. Today Joe's death is recorded as 'justifiable homicide'. Disquiet is self-published on Lulu for the record.
