Another Angle Leads to NPR Podcast
BAIPA member Julie Freestone and her Stumbling Stone co-author Rudi Raab were interviewed for Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilner for an NPR Podcast about travel.
BAIPA member and NPR correspondent, Laurie McAndish King, spoke with Rudi and Julie at their home in Richmond, California, and they discussed the couple’s new book, Stumbling Stone, which tells the slightly fictionalized story of their meeting, overcoming prejudices against each other and falling in love. The two traveled together to Germany to answer questions about what happened to Germans like Rudi and his family when the Occupation forces came—and they uncovered some surprising answers. Rudi and Julie also tell us about a shocking incident they witnessed in present-day Germany.
Their historical novel takes readers on a journey across two continents and could be, as they said, a travelogue as well as a mystery and romance.
