SIGNED by the author as a presentation to recipient. " Milda Danys focuses on the experience of one refugee group - Lithuanian refugees, but her book is by no means a narrow and ethnocentric account. In the sections devoted to their European background she compares the plight of the Lithuanians to millions of other people caught between Nazi and Soviet terror. These traumatic years are skillfully analysed and made more poignant through the recollections of scores of Lithuanian refugees many of whom were youngsters at the time. Sanctuary in Canada was one form of escape from the Displaced Persons camps---" ( Paul Axelrod) "Informative and heartbreaking." (Amazon)
