Ingrid Rimland Zundel :: February 3, 2005

In this moving, first person address, Rimland speaks about her childhood in an ethnic German Mennonite community in the Soviet Union, her “liberation” by the German army in 1941, shortly before the remnants of the community were about to be deported to Siberia by the Soviets, her westward trek along with the retreating German forces, her terrible ordeal in the final months of the war and the immediate postwar period, and her new life in the United States.
