Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. The wedding faded away after the bride and groom had left. Men gathered around in a corner discussing politics.

Some middle-aged men walked out of that discussion and joined the tables where the women were sitting. The people at the table agreed. The discussion again turned to the political situation. This time they discussed the new political program that focuses on the India-Pakistan relationship.

One of my uncles discredited the Indian government, completely forgetting that half an hour ago his daughter had performed one of the latest Indian songs beautifully. In fact, the whole wedding hall was still under the spell of those dances and songs played during the ceremony. Amidst all this sat I, wondering and thinking about my life at ECLA in Berlin, about my seminars, the people I see in the streets and my friends.

It seems difficult to join these two worlds, but each has something unique to offer. The first obstacle to letter-writing, Siemens pointed out, was lack of paper in the camps. Writers used cigarette paper, Soviet propaganda postcards and newspapers with the newsprint rubbed off.

Second was getting the letters past the Soviet censors. Since her discovery of the letters and then interviews with survivors of the Gulag and their descendants in Canada and the United States, Siemens has learned about various ways in which letter writers coded their messages.

For example, she said, one letter refers to conditions in the prison camp being 'as nice as in 2 Corinthians ,' the writer knowing intended readers would get the reference while the Communist censors didn't know Scripture and didn't dare consult a Bible. The passage says, in part: 'We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. Even if the letters got past the censors, it was illegal to send them outside the Soviet Union to the West. Siemens says she has yet to learn definitively how the letters got out.

She speculates that there must have been sympathetic prison guards and postal workers along with some kind of underground network of dissidents that managed to pass the letters on. Many went to relatives in Ukraine and from there to Canada and the United States. A large number of them ended up in the tiny town of Carlyle, Saskatchewan, even if the writers had no family connections there.

Other collections of letters ' 'postcards from hell,' one British newspaper called them ' have been found in south central Kansas in the Whitewater area, in the Beatrice, Neb. The second largest group of letters, after the Regehr letters, turned up in Kansas. Elma Esau, now of North Newton, has them in translation in a notebook, Siemens said.

It seems difficult to join these two worlds, but each has something unique to offer. Pakistan is intense, and living here requires explicitly saying what one thinks and feels with everyone around. You feel the warmth and closeness even during a chaotic wedding or a nasty political situation.

And on the other side of the world lies Berlin, quiet and silent — yet in its silence grow my mind and heart that yearn for truth. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
