“Suppressed I Rise is for anyone interested in a very personal, human view of the history of World War II. A mother’s attempt to protect and raise her two young daughters in hostile NAZI Germany challenges her sensibilities and resourcefulness.”
Captain Hank Bracker, Suppressed I Rise

“Plodding along what barely passed for a trail, I had an eerie feeling. There was still snow on the ground but the air had become warmer, causing a mist to form. We trudged under large trees to a place that I finally recognized. The thick forest ended as we continued, walking across an open field up the side of a hill. Once again our trail entered the woods, however now there were only low bushes, which surrounded the limestone quarry. I hadn’t really noticed but the snow was getting deeper, and now almost obliterated the worn pathway. The young man told me that I was close to my destination and that he would turn back now. I think he felt it would be better if we were not seen together, since the locals loved to gossip and seeing me with a single young man would certainly cause them to talk. Swinging his lantern as a farewell gesture, he disappeared into what had now become a heavy fog. I really felt uneasy now that the fog had settled in. There I stood, knowing that I still had to walk through the rock cut and past some trees before I could get back onto the paved road. There wasn’t anything I could do except continue on!”
Captain Hank Bracker, "Suppresed I Rise"

Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“Este cea care tună împotriva nedreptăţii. [...] Este cea pentru care ne părăsim casa și este casa la care ne întoarcem.
E aici astăzi, șade la masa noastră, stă cu noi la rând, merge înaintea noastră pe stradă. Trăiește în viitor și se întoarce în timp pentru a ne întâlni acum.”
