I apologize if this gets to the list twice, I was not sure if it went
through or not.

This is from the website:
UNDER JAKOB'S LADDER
is based on historical events. The movie is set in 1940 in the early days of
the Soviet Union. It looks at how communism impacted real-life families,
like that of Jakob Seel in Ukraine.
I sent it to the list because it is a story about a German family living in
the Ukraine. Even though they were not Volga Germans, I thought that some
individuals may be interested from a general Germans from Russia aspect. If
you look at the time line of events from the films website, there are
several events that not only affected this family, but the Volga Germans as
Nothing intended by this. I just thought it looked interesting, and thought
someone else might be interested. I happened to "stumble" across it while
searching the web.

What is "Under Jacob's Ladder" about? Why are you sharing the source?
Is it religious, political, or having anything to do with genealogy?
