About the book ‘Snow in June’:
In 1934, Eva, who is a member of the Republican Protection League, sends her sons Slavko and Karl away to protect them from the Nazis. The ‘Schutzbund children’ go on holiday to Crimea and later are settled in a luxurious home in Moscow. Until Hitler breaks his pact with Stalin. Slavko disappears without a trace. Karl is seized and sent to a reformatory for children and young people, and later to a labour camp as an ‘enemy of the people’. In the gulag, he meets his future wife Nina – the author’s mother. Karl tries to return to Vienna as soon as circumstances permit, forcing his wife to go abroad.
Anastasia hat keine Augenbrauen. Und mit 32 Jahren noch keinen Ehemann. Braucht sie keinen? Kriegt sie keinen? Weil sie keine Augenbrauen hat? Weil sie eine erste Tochter ist?
