Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0992317703, Paperback)

It's the 1940's and a young girl picks her way through the remnants of a bombed out Berlin. Life is hard living in the rubble, but amid the bombs, the fighting and the eventual taking of the city by Soviet troops, the young girl and her family manage to eek out an existence by living on the edge and fending mostly for themselves. This is the story of the life of that young girl as told by Gigi herself. From the horror of Berlin during the latter stages of World War Two and the eventual Soviet occupation of her city, to her eventual escape through "The Iron Curtain", Gigi tells a sometimes difficult tale of abuse, slavery and imprisonment, lasting over several decades and finally ending in a little island off the coast of Australia. Curiously and unexpectedly, her story is also one of true love that never really dies. And, through it all, we learn that "The Strong Shall Live".
