A Grandmother Remembers
What better inspiration for a memoir than the request of grandchildren to learn more about their heritage? It was just such a request that led Selma Berg to write her story, starting with an introduction to the history of the Russian Mennonites, her faith community. She draws on a number of family histories to record their harrowing escape from their village Kronstal in Ukraine to Germany during World War II. Stories of her arrival in Canada as a young girl are followed by tales of her life as a farm girl, student, elementary school teacher, librarian, wife, mother and grandmother. A special feature of the book is a substantial account of the year she and her husband spent in Guyana as CUSO volunteers.
Selma Berg (née Krahn) and her husband Wesley live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where they raised their children and now enjoy the blessings of being grandparents.
