WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich.,
March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --
Yakov Rozenberg, a Ukranian-born
mechanical engineer who served two years in a Soviet prison as a
political dissident, was granted "political refugee" status after
his release, and became a proud American citizen in 1993, has
published his latest book "Dreamchaser": a compelling true story of
personal courage, survival, and the realization of an elusive dream
of freedom and pursuit of happiness.
"Dreamchaser" relates stories that occurred during two years in
the Soviet military and two years in the Gulag, a Soviet prison
camp, as a political dissident. Written sometimes in anecdotal
form, they provide a window into both the author's life and
experiences in the Soviet Union
and the feeling of horror for everyday existence there.
The book begins with the harshness of military life, from the
bizarre humor of painting living trees to suit a general's color
preference to the perils of detonating old mines and explosives
left buried during the Second World War, told in the voice of one
young sergeant major. From the beginning, it is clear that whenever
possible, he followed his own path to chase his dream.
The difficulties of burying a grandmother in a society with so
much red tape and prejudice that it seems surreal in its idiocy.
The violence and deception that permeated all aspects of the Soviet
society also fill these stories. The injustice and waste are
illustrated throughout. The KGB is as malevolent and pervasive as
the worst Cold War movie ever depicted it. After being sentenced to
two years in the Russian Gulag, the author describes the terror of
surviving in a prison of about 2,500 criminal inmates. The
circumstances of several individual prisoners are described, and
together they shed an awful light on some of the darkest parts of
life in the USSR. And yet in the midst of the horror, there are
also moments of humor and an unwavering belief that someday there
would be escape to freedom in the outside world.
"Dreamchaser" provides a new angle on life in a Communist Bloc
country, beyond the imagination or understanding of anyone born in
a free society. It ends with a train ride across the border that is
filled with heart-stopping moments, bringing the author out of the
stone age and into freedom to catch his dream—freedom and pursuit
