Synopsis

Nobody Knew is about the years Win Straube spent as a young apprentice in Germany, leading up to and following the fire bombing and burning of Dresden. It deals with the realities and survival of a young East German in the face of adversity during World War II and how he came to prevail in a new and challenging world. This book consists of the sections removed from his earlier book, Enjoying the Ride, also an autobiographical account of his earlier years.
