Living near Mr Krei in Homosassa, Fl. I recently read an article in The Citrus County Chronicle about his book and I jumped at the chance to buy a copy. I was born in Schweinfurt, Germany in 1948 and immigrated with my family to the states when I was five. Mom was born in 1928 and also from a large family and used to tell me about the bombing raids over Schweinfurt. Some of the largest bombing raids of the war occurred there due to the ball bearing factory and other machine industries. Mom never went into much detail about her childhood other than some occasional talk about her many brothers and sisters and her brother Karl who was killed on the Russian front. I found it to be wonderful and although I don't recall my youth in Germany, it helped me understand what my mother and many other German families experienced during the war. I just wanted to thank him for an enlightening reading experience..

Mention Germany and World War II in the same sentence and the usual response is that of a country gone mad under their leader Adolph Hitler, concentration camps where millions suffered and die, and a populace that either refused to notice the atrocities and continued to live their good life or applauded the cleansing of their fatherland by a man who promised the control of the world. Adalbert Krei offers a completely different stance and one that restores dignity to a country that was not resolutely committed of Nazi Socialism and believers in Hitler's insane weltanschauung.

Using the form a diary he shares with us his early childhood memories of living in a poor family with many siblings, a father that had no work, and a mother whose love for cooking was quashed by a lack of food corm which to create meals for her family. His family was Catholic, against the manner in which Hitler was running the country, and yet they lied in poverty, sustaining love for each other and avoiding the atrocities that surrounded them. He allows us to follow his family through the 1930s to the rise of Hitler, the need for the author to become a member of 'Hitler Youth' and even the fact that he was forced to serve in the military, how they sustained life during the war and in the aftermath of the bombing of Germany, the Russian invasion, and the eventual creation of the Berlin Wall. All of this information is shared in a very straightforward manner with details not sensationalized but simply related. Krei shares his marriage to a beautiful girl who would never be able to produce the children they both longed for because of ovarian cancer at age 19, the exodus to America where he became a successful photographer and eventually adopted a child further bonding his strong relationship with his wife.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in life in Germany during WWII. This wounderful book tells the story of how a loving German family, not connected with the Nazi movement, was able to survive during the war. It is the true personal story of the author and his family just before, during and after the war. They lived through bombings, hunger, separations, and the authors fear of being executed by the Nazi SS. I am convinced they survived as well as they did because of their love for one another and their Christian faith. If you have read and liked the book "German Boy" this is a certainly a must read.

Ten Guardian Angels and a Tin Tub
Adalbert Krei
Tate Publishing
Memoir
5 Stars

Ten Guardian Angels and a Tin Tub is the memoir of the author Adalbert Krei . Born in Germany in 1929 he was one of 11 children in a strong Catholic family. The story line mainly relates from the time he was 2 ½ years old until he marries in 1951.As the author relates through his eyes what it was like to grow up in a war torn country with little to eat, no jobs and the propaganda that they had to live under. There is also humor as like all kid's of that age will always find mischief to get into. From being inducted into the Hitler Youth groups at the age of around 13 and having to dig fox holes for the troops. As soon as one was old enough they were inducted into the service in one form or another, even to the girls in a family. Adalbert seen it all and felt it all, fear, lack of food the horrors of the bombs and the destroyed cities , death but he also seen happiness , being with his friends and family and the love they shared. The title of the book shows the significance of the tin tub. It was a happy time, baths in the tub, later loaves of bread carried home in a tin tub and then the tub represented horror after the bombings. As you read the story of this family seen through the eyes of this young lad and the scrapes and excursions he went through you will soon understand he had more than one guardian angel protecting him. He had to have at least ten.

Even though this happened over 60 years ago, those that lived through it still have a vivid memory of what it was like. Having to trade tools for food, plundering supply trains for food, dealing in the black market. This was a very enjoyable book to read.
