Publisher's Description

When Hitler marched into Yugoslavia in 1943, my family became refugees. With many others, we were herded like cattle from camp to camp. After living in Austria for seven years as unwelcome foreigners, we sailed to the United States and faced many challenges in a new culture; however, we found peace.

Like a Haystack focuses on several crucial dynamics:

  • The contrast between life in WW II Europe and twenty-first-century America

  • The endurance needed to survive war, cruelty, and suffering

  • The tensions that result in adjusting to new cultures and values

  • The willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve the American dream.

While different from The Diary of Anne Frank, my story is similar in its insight into the devastation and suffering of Hitlers war. I hope readers will empathize with refugees and seek ways to understand and accept them.

Never did I realize when Margaret first taught English at Osage Junior High that her life had been so exciting and interesting until I read her story. I enjoyed the book, and I am sure other readers will too.

Keith Duncan, retired junior high principal

This account is a fascinating memoir of the authors life in Croatia in WWII and her familys adjustment to life in America.

Lynn Haakenson, English teacher

As a storyteller extraordinaire, Margaret writes of surviving life in mid-twentieth-century Europe. The authors true character develops as she becomes a stalwart person worthy of todays happiness.

Ramona Morse, author, moderator of Mitchell County Alpha Writers
