"Gripping Stories of Heroic People fill the pages of this book. These ordinary but remarkable people are among the thousands whose courage and convictions sparked a moral, spiritual, and political revolution in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, leading to the recent collapse of Communism - one of the most momentous events in modern history." "When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, Barbara von der Heydt launched a private initiative in West Germany to assist refugees from Eastern Europe. As she helped meet their needs, they gave her a glimpse into the lives they had led behind the Iron Curtain, hidden from the eyes of the world. Retracing their steps to Berlin, Leipzig, Warsaw, Budapest, and Moscow, von der Heydt discovered the spiritual roots of the peaceful revolution that shattered Communism." "Based on more than one hundred personal interviews with people who actively resisted Communism, Candles behind the Wall vividly depicts the unexpected end of an era. In the dust of the fallen Communist empire, unsung heroes of integrity now tell what really happened."--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
