Nina’s Wolff Feld’s father, Walter C Wolff led a very interesting life.
Ms. Feld’s non fiction biography of her father’s life Someday You Will Understand: My Father’s Private World War II is about a very fascinating and action driven part of her father’s life.
Walter Wolff is one of the lucky ones. With his parents and his sister, he was one of the last Jewish refugees to get out of Nazi controlled Europe before Pearl Harbor. He joined the American army as a teenager and climbed up through the ranks. He was responsible, while in the army to interrogate POW’s to determine if they were potential war time criminals. At the same time, he was able to locate his extended family who were not so lucky to leave and restore to them the property that was taken by the Nazis.
The middle of the book is a little slow, but it is an incredible read. There is no way this story could be anything but true.
I highly recommend this book.
