Overview

THE IRON CURTAIN WAS THE POLITICAL,

MILITARY, AND IDEOLOGICAL BARRIER ERECTED

BY THE SOVIET UNION AFTER WWII sealing itself

and its dependent eastern and central European allies off

from open contact with the West and other non-communist

areas. It was under these conditions that Jana Jenkins took

her children and dared the impossible: leaving Soviet

Czechoslovakia.

Travel to the West out of Czechoslovakia was governed by

complicated rules to ensure citizens did not defect. Parents

were able to leave the country for short visits to the West,

but children were left behind to ensure their return.

Attempting to leave the country with children was classified

as a criminal act, and punishable by removing the children

and sending the parents to prison. This was the risk when

Jana and her three children boarded a train for West Germany

in 1970.

She didn’t know God at the time and carried the burden of

this risky decision on her shoulders. She was afraid, but God

had a date with her on the other side of the Iron Curtain.
