Alex Bakk, the author of Across the Fence, Across the Pond, was born on the fifteenth of March, 1954, in Baia-Mare (in Northern Transylvania), Romania, and grew up as part of the suppressed Hungarian minority. Life was harsh, and because of the strict Communist censorship, Alex, along with the rest of the population, had no way of knowing what life would or could be beyond the Iron Curtain. As years went by, life conditions, almost unnoticeably, had gradually deteriorated to the point that Alex decided to escape this Communist corruption and take a blind chance in the unknown. Leaving everything behind, including his family, loved ones and friends, he placed his life in grave danger by risking everything and starting a new life from scratch with practically nothing, just the “shirt on his back.” Finally, after arriving in the New World, newly found friends and colleagues found his story very intriguing and kept encouraging and convincing Alexandru that his story needs to be told. And this is how Across the Fence, Across the Pond was born.
