Austria Hungary. Have you ever gone on a trip and become enveloped in the romantic past of the place? That’s what happened to Linda Fischer while in Budapest in 2005. She found herself in a small antique store on the Buda side of the river. There sat a small pile of books. One of them, worn and brown, caught her eye. It was full of undecipherable writings and hand drawings about Austria hungary.
“Of the many ways I have seen people embark to explore the wonderful cultural heritage and magical atmosphere of my homeland and our neighbors, Linda’s is probably one of the most imaginative and rewarding,” said Magdolna Fekete, Director, Hungarian National Tourist Office, New York.
“And not just rewarding for her, but also for anyone who reads this fascinating and educational narrative. I am sure it will be a call to adventure that will inspire many to explore the world as she did, especially the part of the world that she did, the countries of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire: Hungary and her neighbors.”
Susan Lengyel-McLoughlin, Secretary, Hungarian Freedom Fighters Federation, Washington, DC, agreed. “Wow — is one word I can use to describe [The Memory Book]. What a fascinating story. I must admit, even I learned a few things from the book, and I was born and raised in Budapest. The intricate details of the places they traveled to and shops they were in, it was like, I was there. . . . it was truly an uplifting pleasure to read it.”
