Oli and the Wizard
The indescribable terror of World War II had not yet sunk
the tree shadows of Oli’s life.
Wandering among the leafy greenness
covering the castle walls…
Oli thought of the noble knights that once protected her great grandfathers’ world.
She hoped his knights would protect her now.
And so begins the tale of Oli and the Wizard, a story of struggle in pre-war Czechoslovakia, for my mother, her family of privilege, the mystic Karl Weinfurter, the psychic war against Hitler, Nazi occupation and escape.
