About this title


This story is based on actual events. Anna Krocker, whose life is reconstructed as the character Mia, lived through the turmoil of collectivization in the Stalinist Era. When she was nearly 90, she was allowed to emigrate to Germany. It was there that she met the author and recounted the events of her life in Kyrgyzstan. This story takes place in the 1950s, and shows the Communist ideal of collective communal farming had become a dismal failure. Hunger stalked the land and the forced migrations created massive social upheavals. Struggling to survive, six stray sugar beets become Mia's undoing, and send her to prison. Her faith saves her from despair when she faced the loss of her children, and gave her hope to endure five years in the labor camps.
