9781419651946: Where Is My Brother?: A True Story

Adelina Gina was born on May 16, 1948 in Tirana, Albania. After graduating in Albanian language and literature from the State University of Tirana in 1970, Mrs. Gina worked as a journalist for the newspaper “The Teacher” until 1976, at which time she was fired for her strong political beliefs. Afterwards for many years she worked as a literature teacher in Ismail Qemali High School in Tirana. The screening of her play “Someone Came” in 1972 was stopped by the Albanian government because it was considered to be “modern and subversive.” Her book, “Where is my brother?” was published for the first time in Albanian in the United States, by Kurti Publishing in 2002. Mrs. Adelina Gina has published periodically on the arts and culture in various newspapers. She currently lives in the United States.

From the Back Cover :

"Sister," the soldier said, "it's best if we go, don't you think?" I only heard: "Sister..." and I came to my senses. My brother used to call me sister jokingly. I hugged the soldier, placed my head on his shoulder, and cried. "You will be okay," he managed to say. Those words, under any other circumstance, would have made me laugh because they didn't really go with the occasion, but the soldier was in shock and saying those words made him feel better. He said it as if I had endured a sickness, and not a loss of life. I smiled at them between my tears, gave them my hand and we climbed up to the road. Climbing up was even harder than coming down; the soil was very slippery and the bushes were itchy. It was hot. It was 15 of August, 1976.
