Becomes Her Daughter's Nightmare
- Silvia Foti was raised on reverent stories about her hero grandfather, a martyr for Lithuanian independence. Jonas Noreika, remembered as "father, a martyr had resisted his country's German and Soviet occupiers in World War II, surviving two years in a Nazi concentration camp only to be executed in 1947 by the KGB.
- But in 2000, when Silvia traveled to Lithuania for a ceremony honoring her grandfather, she heard a very different story-a "rumor" that her grandfather had been a "Jew-killer."
Storm in the Land of Rain is Silvia's account of her wrenching twenty-year quest for the truth, a heartbreaking and dramatic story based on exhaustive documentary research and soul-baring interviews-intensely personal, but filled with universal lessons about courage, faith, memory, and justice. SILVIA FOTI, an award-winning investigative journalist and English teacher, holds master's degrees in journalism, education, and creative nonfiction. She has been published in the Chicago Tribune, Buenos Aires Herald, and Salon.com. Storm in the Land of Rain is her third book.
