Esther was 10 years old in 1942. She and her parents and grandparents lived in Poland. They had a pretty comfortable life. Then one morning Esther awoke to discover that her family was being taken captive by the invading Russian army. The Russians accused them of being “capitalists” and put them into cattle cars without telling them where they were going. It turned out that they were deported to a forced-labor camp in Siberia. Esther lived there between the ages of 10 and 14. During this time, Esther, her mother and grandmother were able to stay together through harsh conditions and near-starvation.
