This is the story of Julija Šukys’s paternal grandparents, a Siberian exile, an accused Nazi war criminal, their twenty-five-year forced separation, and their subsequent reunion. A journey that began as a testament to her grandparents’ wartime hardship, Siberian Exile chronicles Ona and Anthony’s lives as well as Šukys’s painful reconciliation with the truth and her eventual understanding of how forgiveness operates across generations and across the barriers of life and death.
