Cilka Klein should be honored and celebrated just like Harriet Tubman or Mother Theresa. She did what she had to do to survive the Holocaust so the Russians punished her by sending her to the Gulag in Siberia. I am not sure I could survive Siberian conditions with a hotel, let alone barracks with very little heat. Throughout all of her ordeals she always tried to help others more than herself. Life in the Gulag was incredibly difficult but her initiative and brains helped her to become a nurse and help so many. I am so glad she was able to find true love in the midst of the madness. My only wish is to know more about Cilka and her life after so many years of just surviving. Unfortunately it is probably too late to truly punish those who mistreated her.
