Italki Moderator/member Jura has published A Wolf at our Door based on her Notebook entries on italki. Jura has been with italki since 2008 and serves as one of our Community Moderators.  A Wolf at our Door  chronicles the survival feat of a Lithuanian great-aunt and her two daughters when abruptly exiled to Siberia in World War II for 37 years.

Jura’s book actually started off as a single italki Notebook entry in which she just posed a simple question to the italki community:

 

“My aunt in Lithuania left me her memoirs about her life in Siberia when she and her family were deported there by the Russians during World War 2. Is it worth my while translating her memoirs into English? What do people think?” http://www.italki.com/entry/140381
