The Endless Steppe by Esther Hautzig


This cluster of lessons revolves around the novel The Endless Steppe, the autobiographical account of the author's 5-year exile in Siberia during her late childhood. The story of Esther is about hardship, deprivation, injustice; but above all, it is about how a child's zest for life takes her through these tribulations, and helps her to become part of her new community.
