"This searing account of one man's life threatening struggle for freedom addresses the horror and real history that exists in the lives of prisoners. Gene Kortsha describes in vivid detail his personal experience along with a vivid portrayal of the fear, horror, and intimidation involved. His portrayal of his inner life during this time and of the people that surrounded him is in a league by itself." ~ Catholic Press Association

History Integrity Valor Power

From the back cover:

The first 15 years of his life were spent in exile. After returning to Albania, he experienced firsthand the martyrdom of his homeland through World War II, the civil war that followed, and the subsequent brutal communist domination. He was forced to leave his medical studies, imprisoned, released, and then sent to work in one of the poorest regions in the North. While forced into hard labor he received the physical conditioning necessary for his tenth attempt at escaping the country. He left behind his parents and brother and risked a fate worse than death--capture—hoping for a future and a life free from oppression.

The miraculous story of One Man’s Journey to Freedom: Escape From Behind the Iron Curtain provides a powerfully moving account of the heroic resistance against the destruction of humanitarian principles and persecution behind the Iron Curtain, and reminds us that history could repeat itself at any time and in any place.
