Summary"Part history and part autobiography, Walking Since Daybreak tells the tragic story of the Baltic nations before, during, and after World War II. Personal stories of survival or destruction of Modris Ekstein's family members lend an intimate dimension to this vast narrative of those millions who have surged back and forth across the lowlands bordering the Baltic Sea... The Baltic republics of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, briefly independent between the wars, were devastated and many of their inhabitants scattered to the ends of the earth." —Book jacket
