 "She worked as a bookkeeper at a kolkhoz near the Russian Gevichi [sic] Gorky. When the German Army advanced she was deported to Kazakstan by train. She describes the conditions under which she lived. She worked as a bookkeeper in Kustonay. After the war, she returned to Ternopilʹ and found it almost completely destroyed. She joined a kibbutz in Lodz and worked with Hashomer Hatzair to prepare young Russian refugees for life in Palestine. She organized and led illegal border crossings to get there. During this time she met and married her husband. They went to Palestine from Cyprus, on a ship called The State of Israel in 1948, escorting a group of young Jewish children who had been hidden in monasteries or by Polish families. K.R. then reflects about how experiences have shaped her outlook on life and her views about human behavior."--Summary.
