A true story of a girl in exile in the 1940’s, The Endless Steppe …. written by Esther Hautzig and now re-published by Jane Nissen Books.

‘One of the truly great stories of the survival of the human spirit against all odds,’ says Michael Morpurgo.



A remarkable story of a girl who starts out at age 10 from her comfortable home in Poland. With her family they travel for six weeks in a cattle truck as they are transported to Siberia. Esther lives for the next five years in exile and learns to live with hunger, loss and a deep struggle for the barest essentials.

Twenty years later and settled in New York, Esther writes her story. A story that cries out to be read from the very first page.
