This was the first news we had from him after a nightmare wait to know where he was. It also said “Would the person who finds this note send it to this address” (the address was where we were hiding in Robermont – Belgium.) Someone had found the note which he had hurriedly written and dropped on the floor after his arrest. Thank goodness that someone was not a Nazi or sympathiser.   On that fateful day of September 24, 1942, my father attended a meeting in our hometown of Liege.

My mother had begged him not to go but he felt compelled to do something to help save Jewish lives.

Years Without Hope

Years Without Hope By Werner Juretzko This book is available in the following formats.  Please choose your preference from the menu below before proceeding to checkout.    Mobi (Kindle) $3.99 ePub (Sony / Nook / iPad / Kobo)  $3.99 PDF (Adobe) $3.99 PRC (Mobipocket)$3.99   The date: Aug. 19, 1955.    The setting: A cheap hotel room in Schwerin, East Germany. Outside, the wind howls on an unseasonably chilly August evening. A thunderstorm crackles ominously in the distance.    Twenty-three-year-old Werner Juretzko has just returned from yet another dangerous mission collecting information for a western military intelligence service. He's tired from a typical day of evasion and deception, and he's about to go to bed.    Suddenly, there's a sharp knock at the door. Juretzko darts to the window and prepares to leap from his second floor room.    But outside, several KGB/Stasi security agents surround his hotel.    He realizes he's caught. Juretzko tears up several incriminating photo negatives and eats them. Then he opens the door to find several guns pointed at him. He surrenders.    That's where the harmless movie scenario ends and the harsh reality of Cold War brutality begins.    Juretzko was arrested and thrown in prison. For the next six years, he eked out a miserable existence between various East German jails. He was beaten, tortured and saw several friends executed.    "Forty-one western operatives ended up dead - and those were just the ones I knew," he says.
