Escaping from Communist Czechoslovakia on skis with his family in 1948, Jan Drabek's experience of World War II was anything but ordinary. THIRTEEN follows a young Drabek growing up in tumultuous Prague where Nazi propaganda, clandestine BBC radio broadcasts, conspiratorial talk at home and escapist comedies in the theatres provided an unconventional upbringing and a unique war experience. Recollecting one of history's darkest periods, Drabek's unexpected humour and sharp wit offer a remarkable glance at the impact of the Third Reich. A noteworthy memoir, this re-release commemorates the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II.
