About the book
ALL LOVE COMES HOME, A PROMISE OF TRUTH by GENE FISCH is about my mother’s life from 1916 that rises inexorably from 1918 to June 22,1941. Her historic memoir will take you into the terrifying pre-war years in eastern Poland and the devastating years of the Soviet wartime occupation experienced by my family. The storyline covers history’s greatest genocide of Catholic and orthodox Christians. A relatively unknown alliance between Nazi Germany and the USSR Communism led to the Nazi/ Soviet Union’s occupation of Western and eastern Poland when in the first 26 months of WW11, Soviet Union (Russia) mass murdered an estimated 5.4 million of Eastern Poland’s citizenries which included Ukrainians, Poles, Lithuanians, Belarusians interwoven with Estonians and Latvians populations.
The novel's narrative is based on my family’s true life and historic events. My, in depth, four years of research, this book is in my opinion, the most accurate portrayal of USSR in the 1930’s, including the start of WWII. Over 60 million Christians were mass murdered, in a so-called “Peacetime” (1918-1939), which continued through two decades of absolute horror. The descriptions and declarations of my parents, Bronislawa (Mariana in the book), Andrew Fisch (Andrew in the book), my brother Dominic (Stephen), and sisters, Monica (Maria), and Longina (Veronica), I recreated in the novel, as best I can, my mother’s sense of unconditional love and my father’s steadfast reliance on his faith, and my brother and sisters’ perseverance within the context of a largely overlooked part of World War II history,
I hope that this book will shed light on a largely ignored history and forever show gratitude to those who lie in silent graves in eastern and central Europe. The intimately personal family history is juxtaposed against the Soviet state sponsored terror as carried by NKVD and its agents 1930’s through 1946.
All Love Comes Home, A Promise of Truth follows my mother’s decision to go into the fire, rather than escaping prior to the start of war, and in preparation, planning, and leadership prior to WW11 and during our family’s six years of war.
I am sharing the power of a Polish mother's unconditional love of family, country, faith, and life and my father's faith that may serve as an eternally courageous spirit while constantly facing a terminal future of living between fear and death, insidious betrayal of higher ideals, and in search of truth and meaning.
If my parents, Bronislawa and Andrew Fisch, could render a service to the world today, I feel certain it would be to stimulate in others the love of life they always felt, but also to help those others understand the full truth of Poland’s World War II ordeal and cherish the memory of the Slavic patriots who suffered in the fields of war and died with the footprint of suffering on their souls.
PRAISE FOR All Love comes Home
"A powerful cri de coeur, the author successfully endeavors to reconstruct the
exterminated world of his childhood through the recollections of his mother. Touching and shocking, it is a hauntingly sentimental journey into the depth of memory set to a fast paced and thrilling narrative where fact, fiction, and post-modernist devices conspire congruently to make one whole again."
Dr. Mark Chodakiewicz

I finished your book last night. As I said earlier, I thoroughly enjoyed it but it was extremely painful at times. The hardship and devastation your parents endured is hard to believe. I can’t imagine what it would be liked to be squeezed between two of the greatest evils of the 20th century.
Your telling was incredibly well done and brought the senses of fear, heartache, courage, and joy alive for the reader. Your mother’s fearlessness and your father’s piety are memorable. It also brought what is happening in Ukraine into sharper focus and explains many of the outrages that are occurring. It is hard to tell Putin and Hitler apart, they are motivated by the same character flaws.

The value of ALL LOVE COMES HOME is in the end a storyline of life that aims to conserve, most notably, life's higher ideals, extols the virtues of love over hatred in the struggle for a free mind and soul. We must never overlook that more than one billion Slavic Christians have not succumbed to 20th century’s greatest evil. The author’s ability in articulating the virtue-of-truth serves a great moral purpose. This family's journey values the truthfulness
of having a strong faith, of having a relentless pursuit of higher ideals, and not compromising life's principles that last a lifetime. The pages of the book describe in vivid detail the daily life and what happened to the mothers, fathers, and their grandmothers under a state's soulless religion.

“As a Professor of Leadership, this storyline is a testament to the powerful qualities of life that integrity, passion, family, and internal beliefs can exert on the formation of one’s character, one’s career, and the remembrance of the existence to the whole mind, body, and soul. Gene Fisch’s story has great merit for a reading audience that can identify with the ethnicity anchored by social and political issues of yesterday with today’s political sensitivities, connivance, and mistruths.
A generation can benefit, be uplifted because Author Gene Fisch honestly speaks to the truth of the times.
