141pp. A very good, clean, tight copy. "Many who suffered at the hands of the Soviets were young and innocent children. Ruta Upite, a Latvian girl who was deported twice to Siberia, cried out her sufferings in her diary "Dear God, I wanted to live!" On Bilina Island, Ob River, in the winter of 1943, she saw one-fourth of all Latvian in the group of 200 deportees die of cold and starvation in a period of four months. Her health was destroyed by the slave labor conditions in Siberia, and she died while still young." ( I. Spilners)
