ANNAPOLIS, MD, April 20, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Peter Hruby, Author, has been recognized by Cambridge Who's Who for demonstrating dedication, leadership and excellence in writing.
Born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, Dr. Hruby worked in a factory during World War II and later saw how the communists were trying to change the country. In 1948 when they took over, he went into exile.
