A Family Torn Apart is the harrowing story of one family's flight from Soviet Ukraine in the early years of the Second World War. Beginning her narrative in her youth, Justina faithfully recreates the peace and security of growing up in a Mennonite community in Ukraine. This security, however, is threatened more and more by political changes in the Soviet Union in the 1930s. With the outbreak of the war comes an irrevocable rupture in the peace of the Neufeld's lives and Justina is forced to flee the Soviet and German armies along with her family and community. In retelling her story, Justina describes the feelings of loss and abandonment she felt as she watched her father and brothers disappear forever and the rest of her family being scattered across Eastern Europe and Russia.


Wonderful and heart wrenching book which portrays an openess and intimacy not common. Difficult to put down, and it is a true non-fiction book. ----Robert W. Youngward
