Journey To Freedom

Journey to Freedom is a true story of a family torn apart by WWII and the struggle of a mother and her two young sons to survive in a foreign country, without knowing the language nor the support of relatives. It describes the difficulties faced and the obstacles overcome by Valda Nadolskis and her boys Valdis 5, and Juris 3, during their four years in Sweden and the unlikely journey across the Atlantic Ocean in a small surplus Navy trawler to begin a new life in Canada. It shows the resiliency of the human spirit and the drive to succeed, which has motivated many new-comers to this country.
