An anthology of fiction from Lithuania to appear in the West, these stories predate the disintegration of the Soviet Socialist Republics in the early 1990s. This work includes the themes of resistance and survival under a totalitarian regime that reveal the underpinnings of the Lithuanians' struggle to retain their identity and language.

Page 40 - ... thought that his nation could be quietly erased from Europe, just as over the past five decades forty million Ukrainians have been quietly vanishing from the world without the world paying any heed.
