Stalin and Beria were a sadistic duo whose evil knew no bounds. Not only wanting revenge on the German army for the sufferings inflicted during war and battle, he wanted to purge the countryside of any German presence. How best to do it? With angry and blood-thirsty soldiers amped on vodka, who were given the freedom to express it with no repercussions!
The rapes, beatings, murders and pillaging became nothing more than a forgotten blemish in the annals of history; washed away with rationalization of a fluke, an anomaly with no source of authority. Families either torn apart or murdered altogether. The brutality that has been covered up is a crime against humanity. "In the Course of My Life" gives the story from the first-person perspective of one who is not an historian, politician or military member; but rather, from the eyes and heart of one who survived and cannot forget, Renata Reinhart.
