More > events, she found herself in Central Asia. Through an equally extraordinary chain of events, Leon, a handsome Polish Jew, also found himself in Central Asia.

After the war, they managed to get from Central Asia to a displaced persons camp in Southern Germany. Along the way, they had a baby.

Indeed, as multiple recent crises show, Russo-Georgian tensions connected with South Ossetia and Abkhazia—two of the frozen conflicts—could erupt into open violence at any time.< Less
