One beautiful June morning in 1941 Esther Rudomin 10 finds her happy care free life in Vilna Poland changed forever Early in the morning her family father mother grandmother and Esther are arrested by the Soviet Army They are charged with being capitalists and sent on a six week long train ride in cattle car ride Siberia Arriving at a gypsum mine in Siberia they are assigned their jobs father to drive a horse and cart mother to work at dynamiting the mine Esther and her grandmother to work in the fields The work is back breaking the food almost non existent mostly watery soup and the summer heat unbearable in a place as endlessly flat as the Siberian SteppesLuckily by the beginning of fall the Soviet Union the exiled Polish government and Britain were allies against the Nazis and amnesty was granted to the Polish deportees No longer prisoners they were allowed to leave the mine and live in the small nearby village But life in the village isn t easy either The family moves into the hut of people without much than they have and must share a small space with not room to move around it But it is better than the mine and Esther is able to attend the village school After a series of moves from hut to hut the Rudomins are eventually able to get their own hutBut life is still a struggle of obtaining food having a means of heating the hut during the long bitter cold winter and the gradual wearing out of the clothing they had brought with them and not money to buy And since so many people are bound together by the cold the desolateness of the steppe and the struggle to survive they are often helped by others just as they help others when they can When Esther s father is forced to serve at the Russian front the Rudomin women are devastated but by now uite capable they managed to find ways of surviving And most importantly they continue to have each other to lean on This is a wonderful very appealing autobiography of Esther s life from age 10 to 15 Hautzig has captured her childhood voice beautifully as she recalls her life the reader meets a very indulged child and watches her become an accomplished clever survivor Yet Hautzig has also shown herself not always in the best light there is the bratty Esther the whinny Esther and the willful Esther giving a sense that she was indeed a real person not an unrealistic paragon of courageMy only problem with The Endless Steppe is that there is no explanation about why the Rudomin s were arrested by the Soviets for being capitalists but not the rest of the family and why they weren t rounded up by the Nazis because they were Jews Short History LessonThe answer is simple but maybe not well known In 1939 the Nazis and Soviets signed a 10 year non aggression pact called the Molotov Ribbentrop Pact The pact has a clause that divided Poland the western part to Germany and the eastern part to the Soviets In the summer of 1940 the Soviets began to secure eastern Poland But Hitler being Hitler he decided to pull a fast one on the Soviets and disregard to pact and invade Russia The Rudomins were arrested in that short space of time when eastern Poland was under Soviet control for being capitalists because they owned a jewelry business This book is recommended for readers age 12 and upThis book was purchased for my personal library
