She has survived Siberian exile, several years in primitive Central Asia, the Holocaust, and a return to anti-Jewish Poland. Her teens are taken up with learning English, schooling, and the effort to fit in with her peers. She marries, raises two sons, and earns an MA in art. Her psychologically abusive 20-year marriage ends in widowhood. Determined to rebuild her life, she earns an MSW and starts a new career that is cut short by major surgery. During a year-long convalescence, she returns to painting and photography. In 2000, she moves to southern California with her second husband, and begins to write an autobiography. Positive response to the first section, A�a�AGetting Here,A�a�A spurs her to share the insights gained along the way to encourage transformation of difficult trials into positive outcomes. Ruth continues to paint, write, and make artistic photographs.
