Where Sound the Cries of Race and Clan
It is 1935 and Psychiatrist Charles Flemming has other concerns on his mind: the unfair nature of Canadian Government immigration regulations for Chinese, Jews and other minorities. He meets a Jewish medical student and by chance meets his older sister, Rebekah, who is a widow. As a result, he is determined to search out the immigration decisions in Ottawa. He goes to Ottawa with Rebekah. They fall in love despite the religious differences. The other issues on his mind are the poor status of social justice in Canada and his own dilemma of deception from a relative of his previous fiancée in Poland. He eventually sails to Poland with Rebekah and resolves the deception by granting forgiveness to the mother of his dead fiancée. Rebekah stays in Lotz continuing her research on the history of the Russian rulers treatment of the Jews in Poland.
