Description

Auteur

The Author: Metod M. Milac was born in Prevalje, Yugoslavia, in 1924. At the age of sixteen, he was swept up by the maelstrom of the World War II and its aftermath. He emigrated to the United States in 1950, where he worked as a laborer while pursuing his education. He earned: his B.M. in theory and M.M. in musicology from The Cleveland Institute of Music; his M.S.L.S. in library science from Western Reserve University; and his M.A. in Philosophy from Syracuse University. At Syracuse University, he began a career as a librarian in 1962, where he then went on to earn his Ph.D. in humanities in 1991.



Texte du rabat

Resistance, Imprisonment, and Forced Labor recalls the author's struggle for survival as a prisoner and forced laborer following the Axis occupation of Yugoslavia in 1941. He describes a dizzying and fateful journey during which he worked with both pro-Western and Partisan forces and was variously imprisoned by Italian Fascists at Rab and the Nazis at Auschwitz and elsewhere. A theme that emerges is that civilians were as much participants and victims of the war as those on the battlefield. The author also describes the forced repatriation of Yugoslavs to Tito's forces by the British after the war and the tragic consequences.
