Review of Helmut Fischer’s Discovering America - Part 1

Review of Helmut Fischer’s 
Discovering America (AuthorHouse: Bloomington, 2019) 
Albany, CA 94706-1307

Konrad Kemper, the adolescent hero of Discovering America (Bloomington: AuthorHouse, 2019), Helmut Fischer’s first published novel, recounts his experiences with his mother and father in a refugee camp near Salzburg in post-World War II Austria, as the family awaits their much-anticipated immigration to America. The story of this memoir cum novel is excellently told from Konrad’s point of view, through his interactions with other refugees in the camp, who include nationalities from Eastern Europe and Yugoslavia, with all the ethnicities of that complex region, and Austrian locals and American soldiers of the occupying forces.

Immigration and refugee issue are major global concerns right now in the USA, Europe and Asia. This is due to civil war and human rights violations that people are trying to flee from. In the USA, refugees from South America are either being turned away or detained. Turning up at ports of entry to seek for asylum is a legal process. But the current administration is passing cruel immigration policies that are violating the basic rights of those who are seeking a better life in the USA. Immigration is a humanitarian issue and government officials are forgetting that. If you are not native American you are an immigrant to this country. What would have happened to our European ancestors if their ship was refused entry when they were fleeing their homeland?
