SKETCHES FROM SIBERIA

Presentation by

Werner Toews
Author of Sketches from Siberia


A poignant biography of Jacob Davidovitch Sudermann, a teacher and artist from a Russian Mennonite community who fell victim to the bloodthirsty paranoia of the Stalinist purges and died in a Siberian gulag in 1937.

Sketches from Siberia is pieced together from letters, sketches, and paintings done by Sudermann himself during his imprisonment as well as the unpublished memoir of his sister Anna, who immigrated to Canada in the late 1940s.
