Product Description

Follow a nine-year-old boy through this fast-paced true story of his escape from Nazi Germany. Author Bill Basansky is the boy, Vasili, who lives with his family in a tiny three-room house during a time of worldwide turmoil in Ukraine in the 1930s. The personal story recalls such memories as his family's torture, persecution, and murder under Stalin's Communist regime, his father's abusive treatment of the entire family, and his mother's obstinate refusal to give in to utter despair. Vasili's memoir makes the horrific events of World War II come alive as it is woven alongside historical accounts of Stalin's murderous rampage against the Ukranian people and Hitler's conscripted labor and death camps. The steadfast faith of Bill's great-grandmother, Babunia, gives the family hope as they draw together to find their dream of living in the land of milk and honey, America.

    This book was not only interesting, but very realistic as I got to sit under Dr. Basansky in Russian class many (many) ;) years ago. I have often referred to the story in conversations to friends. The thing that was most powerful to me was the silent, fervent prayers of his grandmother, who was unable to communicate the Christian faith in Stalin's Russia to her children and grandchildren, yet in parables would speak of the place flowing with milk and honey - in this life God brought them out to America, but much more important is the amazing grace of our God who heard the martyr grandmother's prayers and brought them to salvation in Jesus Christ. A reminder that we should never cease to pray and trust God for our loved ones salvation.

    I bought three more to loan out after reading this book! I had the thrill of attending the author's Bible study after he was in his 70's. He is a wise, balanced teacher of God's Word. I know the story is true, astounding as it seems!
