The dismemberment of Czechoslovakia and the growing tension in Eastern Europe ruptured into World War II in 1939, unleashing a succession of disasters that would redefine the borders, ideologies and cultures of this region for years to come.
Against this backdrop, Jenny Williams tells a vivid and remarkable story through the childhood years of war, the early days of Soviet occupation and oppression of Czechoslovakia and Hungary, and the eventual flight of freedom to Australia.
Yenni: A Life Between Worlds is a remarkable story of the human spirit and its will to survive.
