The tectonic forces of Stalinists in the East and Nazis in the West collided with their epicenter the Republic of Ukraine. Anatol Dmytriuk lived his early years under the diabolical tyranny of these two dark forces. His gripping, personal story of survival from his youth, as he threads his way alone through war-torn Europe, is part of a larger, compelling story of terror, enslavement, and genocide in the Republic of Ukraine before and during WW2. Enslaved by the Soviets at age 15 and by the Nazis at 16, he escaped from both by age 18. This is his story.
