The hidden events of forced labour of Rumanian Germans in the Soviet Union after 1945. Thought provoking subject described in good but uninteresting style.

Germans in Romania are sent to Soviet labour camps in 1945 where life is described in painstaking detail, especially the prevalence of the "hunger angel". I left it unfinished.
