World War II Survivors Reunited Thanks to Google Books

By Maryann Yin on September 22, 2011 12:33 PM

Nonfiction writer James H. Keeffe, III authored a guest piece for Inside
Google Books titled “A 67-year reunion of wartime survivors, inspired by
Google Books.” Keefe’s book, Two Gold Coins and a Prayer: The Epic Journey
of a World War II Bomber Pilot and POW, recounts his father’s (James H.
Keeffe, II) military service experiences.

At one point, Keefe’s father was compelled to hide with a Jewish family in
the attic of a kindly Dutch doctor; the family consisted of a mom, dad and
nine year-old little girl. After Keefe’s distributor listed the title on
Google Books, Helen Cohen-Berman found it from searching on Google and then
got in touch with Keefe; she revealed herself to be that daughter who shared
the attic space with Keeffe’s father six decades ago.
