Product description

Product Description

Matt grew up in the Soviet Union, he was born into a Jewish family and Jewish people in Russia experienced discrimination. The absolute majority of them were not religious and Matt’s generation knew nothing about Jewish history, language or culture. The Soviet Government had succeeded in that respect - there was nothing Jewish in their lives: their language was Russian, their culture was Russian, and their interests were the same as those of other ethnic Russians. So, in essence, they were completely assimilated.

For ordinary people, life in the former Soviet Union was never comfortable and it could be worse for those who happened to be Jewish. Soviet official policy did not let Jewish people feel, participate or benefit as everyone else - and after the Six-Day War in 1967, which resulted in the military triumph of the young Jewish state but led to termination of diplomatic relations between State of Israel and the Soviet Union, things got worse.

‘Travel Through Life’ is based on the author's life which, even though quite turbulent and dramatic, is presented with vivid observations and good humour. There is also a lot of fascinating information on Soviet culture, traditions, customs and the mentality of ordinary folk, as it was seen and experienced by the author as he grew up.

Learn about Matt's personal life, and more importantly - about life and feelings of his generation in the old USSR and the reasons for leaving that 'mysterious' country by so many people. From his boyhood up to and beyond his emigration to the West in the beginning of 1979

Come along and join Matt's travel through life and his journey through countries and continents... He describes the life of his generation in an informative, easy to read, and entertaining way. We do hope that many people will enjoy reading this book, smiling and laughing even if sometimes, through tears...

I found 'Travel Through Life' a very easy, yet powerful and incredibly touching read. The way in which Matt writes about his unbelievable journey through his remarkable life is inspiring. His style of humour throughout is comforting, as the book deals with heavy undertones, but never a dull moment. All in all I would recommend anyone interested in not only Soviet times, but in human struggles and life achievements take the time to read 'Travel Through Life'. You won't regret your decision!

Travel through Life is an easy to read, heartfelt account of Matt's life from a childhood in Soviet Russia to New Zealand as an adult.
I really enjoyed his descriptions of Soviet life and his interesting comparisons with life in the West. His stories as a young child during the Leningrad siege and later at school were particularly absorbing. Russia today is very different or is it?
