So Close to Transylvania

As I write about the history of the Transylvania Saxons I wonder why they needed to leave. Why would a war make them leave?

They lived in their homes for more than seven hundred years. They had their farms and their vineyards.

They lost everything.

Now even their culture is dying. I suspect that in about a generation- twenty years or so, the people will have lost everything that they lived and worked so hard for. Their culture, as with so many others will be dead.

So then why the book?

Well, my goal is 60 days until I can make some timid changes from the point of View of people who lived through the Second World War.

Will this be another case of a revived culture?
