The End­less Steppe: Grow­ing Up in Siberia

Esther Hautzig
  • From the Publisher
October 6, 2011
Dur­ing World War II, ten year old Esther and her fam­i­ly are arrest­ed by the Sovi­ets, herd­ed into a cat­tle car, and deport­ed to the frozen wastes of Siberia. This clas­sic mem­oir about five years of hunger, bit­ter cold, and hard labor is an unfor­get­table sto­ry that has become a clas­sic since it was first writ­ten. Rich­es, Remem­ber Who You Are, and A Pic­ture of Grand­moth­er by Esther Hautzig are also strong in Jew­ish values.
