About the author
Tiiu Kleyn was five when her parents fled Estonia to Sweden, escaping the incoming Communists. Four years later they travelled on and eventually ended in Cape Town, South Africa with all the family’s belongings packed in a small wooden box.
Tiiu’s mother, Almi, originally wrote her story in Estonian and Tiiu translated it into English resulting in Almi A Refugee.
Being a refugee once is more than most people can consider but Almi and her family did it twice and if things hadn’t worked out it could have happened again. There are so many refugees world-wide and increasing daily. This book could perhaps be an inspiration and encouragement to those who find themselves in a refugee status. It could also perhaps inspire readers that no matter how bad their circumstances, with faith and courage you can survive and win through against all odds in the end.
