Into Exile


Into Exile

by Elin Toona Gottschalk

It was September 1944 when seven-year-old Elin, her mother and grandmother, fled Estonia ahead of the advancing Soviet Army and escape being deported to Siberia. “Into Exile” is Elin’s personal account of the horrors she and her family experienced during WWII followed by an even more confusing peacetime in class-conscious post-war England. As the adult DP’s struggled to regain their lost dignity, Elin struggled to find her own identity. It was not until some forty-six years later that Elin would return as an official guest and finally release the grief she had inherited for an entire country that survived fifty years of Communism.
