My name is Karina Schmitt, and I am the owner of Sophie Publishing House, a family owned business. I'm also the co-founder and show host of the Raw, Real, and Relentless uncensored podcast show The No BullshitShow which was launched in November 2021 with co-host Ralph Valdes, after having experienced on many levels censorhsip by mall management, new outlets, and social media. We simpley feell that Enough is Enough.
As an author and publisher, one of the most important things in life is our God-given right to Freedom of Speech. We cannot stress enough how crucial that is to not just to authors but to everyone. Anyone how have suffered under socialist or communist governmnets knows what I'm talking about.
Follow the Show and if you would like to be a guest on the No BullShit Show, just contact the Ralph Valdes on www.nbsshow.com
When I accepted the gig of write on behalf of the late Danish World War II veteran, Ole Bjørnsen (1919-2018), his memoir of the dark years in Denmark under Nazi occupation, I had not envisioned that some years later, I would become a publisher. In agreement with Bjørnsen, I set out to find a publisher for his book. While I am the writer of it, the story is entirely his. It's about his experiences from 1939 to 1945.
But then I ran into a chanllenge. Every Danish publisher I queried, rejected the book with the common note that "it doesn't fit our profile and if you eliminate any negativitivy about the Nazis, we will consider it."
How could I possible change the manuscripot when I am just the writer and it is Ole Bjørnsen's lifestory? How could I possibly alter his vies and experiences? How absurd! Or was it censorship at work in the publishing industry that I was not aware of existed in today's day and age?
In April 2019, the Danish version was released and in September 2019, I released the English version. Per request from Ole Bjørnsen, who had served in the Danish Royal Armey during the first year of the war, I sent a copy of the book to Her Majesty Queen Margrethe III of Denmark whom we received a nice letter back from. While I was promoting the English version, I sent a copy to President Donal J. Trump, whom I also received a very nice thank you note from.
While censorship is common now, and we unfortunately experience it increasingly, as if people haven't learned from history, I encourage you to read this personal narrative WHEN THE GERMANS CAME and support a the Danish Veterans, as a portion of the proceed goes to Denmark's Veterans and to support uncensored literature.
