A Land Bright with Promise
A Refugee of World War II Reflects on His Life in America
©2013 Monographs XV, 195 Pages
At the end of World War II, many thousands of displaced persons languished in European refugee camps unable or unwilling to return to their native lands. A Land Bright with Promise recalls the life journey of one such refugee following his immigration to the United States. Metod M. Milač describes his first impressions of America gained in the thriving New York City of 1950, the rebuilding of his life in Cleveland, Ohio, amidst the large community of his fellow Slovenes, and memorable moments of his long career at Syracuse University. Over forty years, he discovers and rediscovers the uniquely American spirit without ever forgetting his homeland.
