Growing up in Hungary from the 1930’s to the 1950’s, Gene Petrasy witnesses both Nazi and Soviet occupation and dominance over his homeland. By age 16 he has formulated a mindset against Soviet tyranny, and becomes drawn into the “Hungarian Freedom Fighters Revolution” of 1956. This pivotal event moves him to make a decision that has long been a part of his youthful yearnings to one day embrace the security and promise of freedom in America. A dramatic family saga is set. The unfolding events that become Gene’s existence are not to be viewed as mere coincidences. Indeed, even to the casual reader, his story evolves as if guided by an unseen presence that will bond him to an appreciation for the “difference” that freedom affords.
