Author Enrico Lamet Offers Unique Perspective of World War II in Newly Released "A Gift from the Enemy"


Compelling childhood memoir tells remarkable tale of the strength and resilience of the human spirit

Hermosa Beach, CA (I-Newswire) January 2, 2014 - Enrico Lamet recently released a revised and enlarged edition of A Gift from the Enemy: A True Story of Escape in War-Time Italy, a compelling childhood memoir of World War II.

Enrico Lamet was born in Vienna, and spent the first eight years of his life in a comfortable middle-class atmosphere with his Jewish mother and father in Austria. At only 8 years of age, the Nazis invaded Vienna, changing the lives of all European Jews forever. The Lamet family fled to Italy, where they spent most of the next twelve years.

Follow along as Eric and his mother face struggles in fascist WWII Italy, attempting to forge friendships and make a new home. Lamet recounts his mother's struggles to adjust from sophisticated urban living to a primitive bleak setting. Despite the world crumbling around him, Eric still manages to live an adventurous life.

In a style as original as his story, the author vividly recalls a dark time yet imbues his recollections with humor, humanity, and wit. Lamet offers a rare and historically important portrait, one you will not soon forget.

While the story takes place in Fascist Italy during the Holocaust period, it is not a Holocaust book.

A Gift from the Enemy was published on October 13, 2013 and is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Enemy-Story-Escape-War-time-Italy-ebook/dp/B00FVZE77Q

About Enrico Lamet:

After World War II ended, Lamet settled in Naples with his family. He finished high school in that city and studied Engineering at the University of Naples.

In 1950 the family moved to the United States, where Lamet continued his engineering studies at the Drexel Institute of Technology in Philadelphia, near his family's home. Deciding that business would be more in keeping with his personality, he embarked on a business career. Over the years he became involved in a variety of enterprises until his eventual retirement as a CEO in 1992.

Fluent in German, Italian, English, Spanish, and Yiddish, Lamet served as an interpreter for the U.S. State Department and taught Italian for several years. Lamet has studied piano and voice and, to this day, enjoys performing Neapolitan songs.

Enrico Lamet, together with his wife, has 5 children, 7 granddaughters and two great-granddaughters. The Lamet's live in Pittsfield, Mass. For more information, go to http://www.ericlamet.com/
