Liane I. Brown
author of Refuge and From Fear to Freedom
As a ten-year-old girl, Liane Guddat watched Hitler’s motorcade pass by their home in Insterburg, East Prussia. Within a few short months, Insterburg was smoldering in ruins when Mutti (Liane’s mother) and her four children scrambled over bricks, broken glass, and scorched beams as they tried to escape the ravages of WWII. Although not a Nazi, Liane’s father had been drafted into the German army and became a prisoner of war.
Liane tells her true story
Hitler’s Third Reich of Germany, in its corruption and despotism, subjected many of its own people to terrible abuse before it began to crumble, abandoning them to a new kind of holocaust. Despite brutal treatment, harsh conditions, near starvation, and bodies riddled with boils, when others around them languished in despair, God brought great glory to Himself through the lives of His faithful servants. Liane tells the true story of her East German family’s steadfast faith and struggle for survival amidst the horror of Russian occupation in her autobiographies Refuge and From Fear to Freedom.
