Into Exile: A Life Story of War and Peace

by Elin Toona Gottschalk

It was September 1944 when seven-year-old Elin, her mother and grandmother, fled Estonia ahead of the advancing Soviet Army and escape being deported to Siberia. “Into Exile” is Elin’s personal account of the horrors she and her family experienced during WWII followed by an even more confusing peacetime in class-conscious post-war England. As the adult DP’s struggled to regain their lost dignity, Elin struggled to find her own identity. It was not until some forty-six years later that Elin would return as an official guest and finally release the grief she had inherited for an entire country that survived fifty years of Communism.

    This book is a powerful and amazing story of what refugees went through during WWII. Many people suffered due to the Germans and the Russians during this time and for those forced to flee their homes and their country, times were not easy. All of Europe was engaged in war and the infrastructure of host countries were in shambles. This book marks one families fight for survival both during and after the war. Few people were untouched during this time. The author was a small child when the Russians forced families from their homes and homeland to prevent deportation to Siberian death and labor camps. This story is unfolds through the eyes of a child and a childs perspective of a changing environment while struggling to understand what it all means.
