From 1994 to 2001, Sisters of St. Agnes from Wisconsin served in a Catholic parish in Chelyabinsk founded by German survivors of the work camps. In interviews conducted by two of the sisters, 21 different German pensioners living in the area speak about their lives before, during, and after WWII. An appendix includes a list of all the family names and place names mentioned in each narrative.
