May 24, 2011 - PRLog -- Based on true events that happened during World War II, eight members of the Golke family slip through a gated border point in Poland, where escapees are hunted down by dogs and shot.

This amazing tale of love, hope, and survival against all odds, brings the war years alive, at a time when most survivors are no longer here to tell their stories. Trapped in the Russian Zone tells of Ferdinand Golke, who at age 15 was drafted into the military in 1944. He flees his post and is caught within hours, soon to face trial and death by firing squad.

Prior to this, following the Hitler/Stalin agreement in 1939, the Golke children were among hundreds taken from their parents and detained in a camp in western Poland, where they experience hunger, cold and depravation. How the children survive and escape to build new lives makes for truly amazing storytelling.
