Nothing More to Lose is an intense, hair-raising, and hopeful account of one family’s resilience and faith. With 25 poems based on Therese Kolbert Dieringer’s autobiography, My Life – Lived and Remembered: A journey across Hungary, Germany, and America, Carolyn Martin tracks the Kolbert family as they escape from Hungary in 1944, endure seven years of starvation and sickness in Germany, and arrive to a new life in America in1952. Refugees who know neither the language nor landscape, they finally find some semblance of peace in their new home. Nothing More to Lose will open readers’ hearts and minds to the challenges that refugees in every era face.
