SUMMARY ↠ The Road Beyond Ruin For some people in post–World War II Germany the battle is not overAugust 1945 As Stefano an Italian POW heads toward home across war ravaged Germany he encounters a young child beside his dead mother Unable to leave him to an unknown fate Stefano takes the boy with him finding refuge in a seemingly abandoned hou. As a child in the 1960 s and 70 s it never occurred to me their was to the story of the end of World War II than the news reel clips and photos I saw of happy people cheering and grateful European civilians thanking American GI s for liberating them What we learned in school didn t paint any clearer of a picture There was something called The Marshall Plan by which the good ol US of A single handedly through the goodness of our hearts set all of Europe back on the road to prosperity There was some controversy about this plan but I don t understand it and it s almost time for recess and I have to figure out if I can hang out with Mary Sorenson s crowd today or if this is one of those days I am a pariah so forget Europe Their fine now anyway It wasn t until I was a grown woman in my 30 s when I started mall walking in a frigid Whitefish Bay Wisconsin shopping center and got to know some of my fellow walkers that I learned the truth I met several holocaust survivors in that walking club While they never spoke about their time in the camps except to mention loved ones who didn t make it they were very willing to share the further horrors of what befell them when the gates were opened You see they had nowhere to go no one to be with They were not even in their own country Who would help them One woman told me about sitting down right outside the fence and crying because she had no life beyond where she was at that moment The Road Beyond Ruin is not about Jews It is about the people who were unlucky enough to have been born on the other side of the conflict They were Germans and Italians who just wanted to live their lives but were unable to because of the Nazis and the fascists and what they were willing to do to their own people to achieve their despicable goals These unfortunates some innocent some complicit were left struggling to survive in a ruined world a civilization torn to shreds where they never knew whom they could trust The fears of betrayal were still deep The story centers on a uintet of people four of whom grew up together in what would become Russian held East Germany and the fifth an Italian resistance fighter who finds his life entwined with the others throughout the war and it s aftermath The story is stark brutal and deeply emotional I came away with what I believe to be a better understanding of the confusion of life in Germany after the fall of Hitler
