Ingrid Asvedo was 11 years old when she hid in the rubble of a bombed and ruined Berlin. She was hiding from soldiers of the Soviet Army after the fall of the Third Reich.

She’s written a book called "Out of the Rubble" about her experiences during the war, her gratitude for the American military, and her thoughts on the American political climate today.

The author will be speaking to the Black Hills Veterans Writing Group this Saturday at Ellsworth Air Force Base’s South Dakota Air and Space Museum from 9 to 11:30 (first 30 minutes is social hour.)

But first, Ingrid Asvedo sits down with Dakota Midday host Lori Walsh to tell the graphic story of growing up under the menacing shadow of the swastika.
