The author, Andrew Merkler, searched far and wide for footprints of his hard-working family. He visited Hungary, the land of his birth, and most countries between Germany and the Ukraine. Andrew's father was a prolific author, writing plays, films etc. His lyrics are popular 60 years after his death. Apart from doctors, landowners, the like, his relatives also include a composer, a film director, Lajos Merkler who in 1924 developed the largest paprika mill in the world, and the world famous film magnate, Sir Alexander Korda. Emil Hajos, a close relative, served in the Austro-Hungarian Army during WW1, then spent 5 years as a Soviet POW in Vladivostok. After his release he returned to Hungary, where during WW2 the Scottish Mission (who came fom Glasgow to 'save Jewish souls') converted him and his wife, Maidy to Christianity. During the Siege of Budapest (1944/45) Emil was instrumental in saving my life. Tragically he could not save the lives of my father and my 16 year old brother, Peter. After Emil's death Maidy went to live in Germany to preach Christianity to the Germans.
