Name that Book: An Appleton Biochemist from Czechoslovakia

Received an email from someone looking for a book about an Appleton family with roots in Czechoslovakia. Can you name this book? Here's the email:
I am hoping you can identify a book for me. I have recently read a book about a family from Czechoslovakia that emigrated to Appleton after undergoing the abuses at the hands of the Nazis and then the Russians. The father was a biochemist and almost executed. They moved to india and then to Appleton. Sure hope you can help me identify the book.
