Exciting developments in Loucka, Czech Republic

On July 6, 2012, in the small city of Loucka, Czech Republic, Dorinda stands in front of a map of Pearl Harbor, featured in a new WWII and Pearl Harbor museum. The giant map shows the harbor as it looked on December 7, 1941, when the Japanese attack occurred. Dorinda was living on the Pearl City Peninsula, only a few hundred yards from Ford Island. If you look carefully at the map behind her, you can see the extreme tip of her peninsula above the letter "P." One of our previous posts shows her location more clearly.

Dorinda was thrilled that her book, Pearl Harbor Child, shown above, was translated into the Czech language by Marcela Ultrova (seen here with Dorinda in front of the American Embassy in Prague, where Dorinda told her Pearl Harbor Child story), and released to the public that same day the Museum was opened. Her book in English, with a fresh new look, is now in its 12th printing, and will be available near the end of March, 2013.
