This is a great book. It is about a German man who worked for the German Red Cross during World War II named Walter Loge'. Walter was captured by the Russians and taken deep into Russia to a prison camp to work, and live under very poor conditions. Walter was a Christian and after 7 escapes he made it back to Berlin to his family in 1945. Walter was kind to all along his path and learned to play the balalaika, a Russian instrument. He shared whatever food he had with the Russians or whoever he was with. After being reunited with his wife and children in Berlin in 1945, 8 years later he immigrated to the United States with his family. They live in the Unites States today.

This book was republished this year under the same title and story.
