A Hearty Welcome to...

All Things Beautiful by Alexandra von Maltzan.

Her maternal grandfather was executed by General Tito's henchmen as part of his brutal purge of Yugoslavia's political and intellectual elite post WWII. General Tito sought to squash all allies of Alexandra's great uncle Milan Stojadinovic, Prime Minister of the former Kingdom of Yugoslavia 1935-39, and a staunch opponent to Hitler's and Stalin's dictatorships. After the war he immigrated to Argentina, where he founded and built the venerable El Economista, still in the family's hands today as Argentina's equivalent to The Wall Street Journal.
