Home Is Somewhere Else: Autobiography in Two Voices

Front Cover
SUNY Press, Jul 1, 1994 - History - 235 pages
Following the Nazi annexation of Austria in March of 1938, Desider Furst, his wife, and his daughter suddenly found themselves hunted outlaws, holders of a German passport branded with a red J for Jewish. They escaped from Vienna and eventually settled in England, where they spent the war years as enemy aliens. In 1971 they emigrated once more, this time voluntarily, to the United States. Home is Somewhere Else is a dual-voice, autobiographical narration by father and daughter, recounting the family s displacements, obstacles, and repeated reversals.
