Andrew Bienkowski was five years old when his family was banished to Siberia from their Polish homeland. With virtually nothing to see them through the long, cold winter, his grandfather chose to starve to death in order to give his family a chance at survival. The years that followed were harrowing and difficult, but also magical. Warmed by the beauty of the natural landscape and the kindness of strangers, Andrew’s story as told by Akers is an inspiring look at what we can achieve when we are truly selfless.
