This story has tons of feels. It's about when Stalin was invading countries. The author's note speaks about how everyone knows of Hitler, but many don't know that Stalin was doing horrible things. Because of how Russia was communist until the 90's people weren't allowed to talk about it before so it isn't as known. Anyways, the Lithuanian people in the story were taken from their homes and loaded into railroad cars. Many died during the trip. It was horrible. They went to work camps. Some ended up in Siberia freezing to death. Parts are heartbreaking. It focuses a lot on the relationships between the people, not just all the horrible stuff that happened.
