Inna Wolkovich Gardner Nichols’ story is not a recount of the horrors of war—for those stories have already been written. Her story is a true personal recollection based on her memories as a young orphan girl caught up in the ravages and consequences of World War II as so many thousands endured. Her saga continues as she recounts the enormous challenges she faced as a Non-English speaking immigrant living in the United States.
What is written by the author is primarily based on Inna’s personal accounts. At this point in her life of eighty plus years, the events described in this story stand out very clearly in her mind. Inna’s inspiring story is a testimony that the human spirit has the capacity to survive and receive God’s grace, no matter what the difficulties and struggles in life might be.
