"Outcast Without Guilt or My Way Of Cross"
by Zvonko Springer
A loud hello to Nenad Bach - pozdrav Nenade,
I've achieved my long outstanding wish to make public my book in English at last. My original manuscript composed in 1984/5 has been published after 3 years long trial and error period now. Here are the necessary details for anybody interested in buying and/or reading my book.
Thanks for your continuous interest and any support you may provide my book to be read by the Croatians speaking/reading English only. I remain with many regards yours sincerely
Zvonko of Oak Hill alias Zvonimir "Bell-ringer for Peace" uz mnogo srdacnih pozdrava

About the Book:
My book is almost a diary account of personal and intimate experiences I have endured in 1945. I recalled the four months as accurately as I have been able but in some cases I was incapable to remember speeches or conversations verbatim. I have not recreated any conversation or event at which I was not personally present.
I dedicate my work to all known and unknown dead compatriots on the Croatian Ways of the Cross in 1945. They shall rest in Peace! Also I want to console all those who survived to reconcile with their destiny since they could not share or explain their story of sufferings to the most intimate ones. This book shall also acquaint the younger Croatian generations with horrors and tragic fates of their kin as they did not disclose about their own survival. They shall not forget some hundred thousand of Croatian men who were annihilated indiscriminately and buried at too many unknown places along Croatian Ways of the Cross.
All peoples of good will shall beware of human cruelties waking up their alertness to any sign of the totalitarianism and of the indiscriminate ousting. We should forgive but not forget inflicted injustices and persecutions.
The Free Preview:
My book is an account of personal and intimate experiences I have endured and written as accurately as I have been able to recall them. In some cases of course I was incapable to remember speeches or conversations verbatim, but I have recreated them as accurately as I can. I have not recreated any conversation or event at which I was not personally present.
I dedicate this piece of work to all known and unknown dead compatriots who lost their life on the Croatian Ways of the Cross in 1945. They shall rest in Peace for ever! Also I want to console all those who survived them by assisting to reconcile with the destiny as they did not have the chance or the strength to share or to explain their story of sufferings to the most intimate ones or to others too. Finally this book shall acquaint the younger Croatian generations with the horrors and the tragic fate of their blood relations because could not or did not dare to disclose liberally about one’s own survival. They also shall not forget some hundred thousand of Croatian men that were annihilated indiscriminately and buried at too many unknown places along Ways of the Cross in 1945. It addresses any person of good will too to beware of the human cruelty and wake up the alertness to any sign of the totalitarianism and of indiscriminate casting out as well as of any kind of brain washing.
We should forgive but not forget the inflicted injustices and persecutions. We shall learn from the history!
