The Berlin episode includes comment about the "We Care" program of churches within the USA sending goods to the refugees after the war. There is substantial content involving the East German Administration within the GDR, and how the education of the German children was handled after the occupation period had begun.
"Rita's" memory is excellent, and augmented by her sisters, and Mother I suspect. One comes to admire her older sister, "Edith". The story of their struggle is unique to my erudite experience of the period with the author's vivid recollections of many incidents.
A really good book with a companion book I have yet to read relating her Mother's story at a forced labor camp in Russia mentioned at the end during the epilog of this book.
