Gratefully Looking Back: A Doctor's Special Journey

Gratefully Looking Back: A Doctor's Special Journey

by Rudolf H. Bock

This is the autobiographical story of a medical doctor, an ophthalmologist who, when the Nazis took over Austria in 1938, was interrupted in his last semester of Medical School in Vienna -- four exams short of his M.D. -- and forced to flee the country. 

As the title suggests, the beleaguered author's generally positive attitude toward life, as well as many extraordinary and illuminating incidents, allow him to look back 'gratefully' on his life during that extended period of struggle. His key insight is: there are far more kind and helpful people in the world -- Orient as well as Occident -- than you may imagine!
