9781490404233: Lives Divided: My family torn apart by WWII and the Russian Gulag

Captured by the Soviets in 1944 as he tries to flee across the Turkish border with his fellow diplomats from the German Legation in Sofia, Bulgaria, Roland Gottlieb leaves behind his Swedish-born wife, two young daughters and his newborn baby girl, Birgitta, whom he has yet to see. In Lives Divided, Birgitta shares what life is like for her family before and during World War II and what it is like afterwards growing up in Sweden without her father. For six long years the family lives in uncertainty of where Pappa is in the vast Soviet Gulag, or if he is even alive. Then a returning POW informs them that he had been with Roland Gottlieb in Vorkuta, Siberia just shortly before his own return. With this new evidence, her mother’s despair changes to hope, only to be dashed two years later when another POW claims to have buried Gottlieb in the Siberian tundra. With all hope gone, Birgitta’s mother is about to remarry when a post card turns their lives upside down again. Lives Divided is a true story of human suffering and endurance, in which a stubborn will to survive triumphs over the horrors of World War II and its aftermath.
