chorus to chant it to you and anyone else interested in hearing about civil rights and uncivil desires Alan Cheuse, All Things Considered NPRDear Reader,In 2004 I read Firpo W Carrs book Germanys Black Holocaust 1890 1945, and was immediately intrigued According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, The fate of black people from 1933 to 1945 in Nazi Germany and in German occupied territories ranged from isolation to persecution, sterilization, medical experimentation, incarceration, brutality, and murder.I realized that while much had been written about the Jewish victims, the fate of Africans and African Americans at the hands of the Nazis was less well documented.I was fascinated by this discovery and set about writing a story that would illuminate this hidden verity But for many years, the story seemed out of my reach as I struggled to find a connection with the characters.Luckily for me, early attempts at creating the story coincided with my ongoing personal genealogy research For some twenty years Ive been consumed with investigating my paternal line specifically my grandfather, Harold McFadden, who was entirely absent from my fathers life, thus a mystery to both of us.When I decided to model Harlan Elliott after my grandfather, all that I had been struggling with came to an end It was as if I had found the golden key suddenly the foreign became familiar and the novel unfurled as naturally as a flower in spring Bernice L McFadden Personalised Books Gifts The Book of Everyone Wonderfully curious personalised books for the whole
