Time Travel to Vienna, 1929

Two Suitcases  is my parents' story.

Between 1938 and 1942, Fritz and Trude narrowly escaped the Nazis three times, each time taking with them little more hope, love, and two suitcases. Three times, they started over. Forward-thinking, imaginative, wise, and funny, they lived through the worst of times and they thrived.

I'm retelling their story as historical fiction. I wish I'd had the sense to record their story when I could have, but I didn't. Now, to tell it as accurately as I can, to feed the hearts and minds of readers of historical fiction with the detail they love, I embed myself in the times and places I am writing about as best I can.

The internet and the library are a remarkable resources, but, once in while, something comes up that seems so useful or so close to my heart that I like to buy it. 

Thanks to the generosity of friends, I just bought the small book I was hoping for and two others.

Original request:
To that end, I am asking your support in purchasing a short book that was published just after the Socialist Youth Internationale in Vienna in 1929. My parents met in the Socialist Youth Movement a few months before that, preparing for the event.

Two more books I was hoping for and have now purchased:

Interwar Vienna: Culture between Tradition and Modernity


Architecture in Red Vienna

I'm still hoping to be able to buy a copy of 

Red Vienna.

But I would be so happy if you would support the purchase of the last book for me. My libtary copy is full of post-its and is due ! It would be enormously helpful to have my own copy.

Thank you!
