About this title

Synopsis:

"Exiled to Siberia" is the biography of a Polish child deported by the Soviets in 1940.It tells about his early childhood until, as an adult, he declares "I am an American." The book also outlines the pertinent history and discusses the German and Soviet policies toward Poland during WW II.The protagonist's story gives a human dimension to these historical events. The book also testifies to his religious belief as a sustaining force. In addition it causes the author to compare his own childhood in Nazi Germany with that of the protagonist during this time.

About the Author:

Klaus Hergt, MD, grew up in Weimar, Germany under the Nazi regime. After the war, he experienced the Soviet rule firsthand in East Germany, and later visits to Czechoslovakia and Latvia deepened his insights into life in Soviet occupied countries. His observations and experiences have made him keenly aware of the fate of the individual under totalitarian rule.

Klaus Hergt is a retired surgeon and now a hospice physician in northern Michigan.
