The Grayling Is The Name of the Fish That The Freier Family Ate When They Escaped to the Woods During The Occupation of Slovakia

Posted by cheryl - June 10th, 2017

The grayling, an exceptionally beautiful fish in its own right has been removed from the endangered species in the United States.  During WWII the fish spawned prolifically in the fresh water that it swam in.  The grayling fish was the Freier family’s main source of food.  This fish was easy to scoop out of the water with hands, but it fought hard for its life after it came out of the water and many times it had to be dropped back into the stream.  The grayling fish became the family’s symbol for survival.  Cheryl Freier:  www.thegraylinghiddentruthpoems.com

Reading and thinking about concepts like the grayling fish that has meaning

Posted by cheryl - August 24th, 2015

The grayling fish was an immediate source of food for Martin’s family who were hiding from the Nazis
The novel The Grayling Hidden Truth Poems is about a family in Nazi Slovakia who escaped to the woods. The significance of the grayling fish is that the fish spawned in the waters in the lakes in Slovakia and was plentiful. The grayling fish, however, fights fiercely to survive after it has been taken from the water. The grayling fish became the Freier family’s symbol of survival. They survived the war.

IN COMMEMORATION OF A VALUABLE PIECE OF SOIL By Cheryl Freier author of The Grayling Hidden Truth Poems and The Wild Grasses Hidden Truth Poems (Both novels on a family forced to flee to the woods of Slovakia to escape the onslaught of the Nazis)

Pictured beneathe the caption (on Yahoo.com) are people who have come to honor those who gave their lives for the freedom of the world during WWI.  The caption of the article reads:  “World War I battlefield soil arrives in London”.

Having married a man with whom I shared a life with for 40 years, who truly was a man of wonder in many ways.  The quality of his thinking about what is the right thing to do and his empathy for others were the highlights of his thoughts.  I shall miss him always. 

In reverence to his memory and to his ability to overcome the hate and persecution which he was exposed to unfairly as a young boy, I have written a series of four books in memoriam of him, Martin Freier;  the books contain some of the music which he wrote, and contains many of the poetry that he wrote. 

I pray for peace in the world and peace in our hearts and souls.  I am grateful to see a project of this enormity which collected the soil from 70 nations to display the soil as symbols for freedom to perpetuity in a memorial garden in England. 

I wish you all happy holidays and peace and perpetuity for all righteous thoughts.  Cheryl Freierf
