The story of Rita Kuder, born in eastern Germany in 1922, her early years growing up and her experiences living in Germany during the Nazi period and through World War II.

Rita and her family became refugees as the war entered its final weeks, in order to escape the fighting (including the bombing of Dresden) and the advancing Russians. Besides trying to survive the war, there was also the need to find food and shelter, and work. Through tragedy and hardship, Rita and most of her family managed to survive.

After the war, Rita was befriended by an American Army major, and eventually they fell in love and married. She became one of many war brides that arrived in this country during the years after the war. Her story continued as she made a life for herself with her husband and raised three children. Much of her life was a mental, emotional and physical struggle. This is her story.
