Displaced Person A Girl's Life in Russia, Germany and America
Ella E. Schneider Hilton, "Displaced Person: A Girl's Life in Russia, Germany and America"
English | ISBN: 080713192X, 0807128783 | 2006 | 296 pages | PDF | 2 MB




In this moving and personal memoir, Ella E. Schneider Hilton chronicles her remarkable childhood - that took her from the purges of Stalinist Russia to the refugee camps of Nazi and postwar Germany to the cotton fields of Jim Crow Mississippi - before granting her access to the American dream. Through told with charm and humour, Ella's life reads like a suspense novel. On the day that Germany invaded Russia, Ella's father was arrested in Kiev by Soviet authorities, never to be heard from again. Fluent in German, her mother provided for her two children and mother-in-law by assisting the occupying forces. When the city was about to return to Russian hands, the family fled to Germany by freight train. Food was scarce and Allied bombings killed her grandmother, but young Ella retained her inquisitive spirit. Her mother married a widower to survive and the family emigrated to the US as the indentured servants of a "host family" in Mississippi, where they picked cotton and lived in poverty. Puzzled by segregation, Ella learnt about the Holocaust and realized that her father was probably Jewish. Throughout her ordeals, she never relinquished hope or sight of her goal of education.
Poignantly and freshly rendered, this is a tale of determination. It is the story of a girl caught up first in the maelstrom of World War II and then in the complexities of southern culture, adjusting to events beyond her control with resiliency as she searched for faith, knowledge and a place in the world.
