Walking to Freedom is the autobiography of Leokadia Haberling Schwengler. 

Her story begins in the Ukraine in a German village near the Black Sea. A blissful childhood abruptly ends when Stalin's made made famine (the Holomodor) devasts the region. As World War II's battling armies advance, she and her family must flee their homes on a wagon train destined for Germany.  Years later,  she finally arrives there, where she meets her future spouse in Hamburg.

Their decision to leave the war ravaged country for Canada takes her on another adventure abroad.
