Abstract:

Combining history and hardship, battles and betrayal, miraculous escapes and death-defying encounters, From Exile to Eden chronicles one family's journey from deportation in Siberia to safety and freedom in America. On February 10, 1940, the Szelazek family was deported as prisoners of war from Poland to a Soviet labor camp in Siberia, beginning a 12-year epic journey that spanned countries and continents. In From Exile to Eden, Jadwiga Szelazek Morrison traces her family's harrowing yet inspirational flight from war-torn Europe beginning with two remarkable people-Tadeusz Szelazek born in 1909.
