Reviewing The Forgotten Sep 11, 2003
Father has written an important book on our history. Many of us have learned new information about the history of our Church, of people who suffered in the camps for the Faith, because we were not allowed to read about this. Often it was dangerous to even talk about people who had been taken away, or know the full name of a priest who came to serve Liturgy for us. We now can worship freely, but still not always in our own churches. And conditions in some places are still strict against our Church. You cannot understand the modern problems between the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, and the pain of the underground believers, unless you read this book.

Fr. ZUGGER's book, "THE FORGOTTEN" covers a portion of what has been covered up in this country on the fate of GERMAN settlers in Russia. Estimates of the amount of people killed under COMMUNISM, range around 1/6 of the population of the earth.
I have been working on the GERMAN CATHOLIC colonies of RUSSIA since 1950 and have a huge amount of material collected on these people. My fathers family immigrated to RUSSIA in 1767 and my mothers side in 1809.
