In this posthumous memoir, Joanie Holzer Schirm  reveals the life story of  her father, Oswald “Valdik” Holzer, as an inspirational account of survival during wartime,. She finds hundreds of letters after the death of her parents in 2000. They were held together by rusted paperclips and stamped with censor marks. Those were sent from Czechoslovakia, Great Britain, China, South America and North America along with journals, vintage film, taped interviews, and photographs. While working through those materials to document the life of her father, she learns her family history through her father's remarkable experiences of exile and loss, resilience and hope .
