Andrew Bienkowski was six years old in 1940 when his family was banished to Siberia from their Polish homeland. With virtually nothing to see them through the long, cold winter, his grandfather chose to starve to death in order to give his family a change of survival. The years that followed were harrowing and difficult, but nevertheless magical. Warmed by the beauty of the natural landscape and the kindness of strangers, Andrew's childhood experiences in Siberia had a profound effect on his life. When he escaped the Soviet Union he went on to train as a psychotherapist, driven by the desire to reach out and help others living through difficult emotional times. As Andrew shares his experiences in Siberia, he reminds us that the greatest fulfillment we can achieve as human beings is found in helping others.
