I'm pleased to announce the official publication of Precious Legacy, the story of our family's 1956 escape from Hungary -- and how we ended up in America. It is the first book project independently published through my company (Grafikus). [Thanks, Eric & David, for pointing me to the right printer.]
Many other people have written about the historical events leading up to, during, and immediately after the 1956 Hungarian uprising. Precious Legacy, however, is more of a personal perspective. In it, my mom describes her life before and during the Russian occupation, the escape itself, and what an emotional roller coaster it was for her ... how ecstatic she was for ultimately succeeding in getting her children to a free, wonderful place; yet heartbroken, because the homesickness for her European family was sometimes overwhelming. She was only 25 at the time.
