An exhibition of 22 Paintings by Winnipeg artist Ray Dirks.

A project of the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery, Winnipeg.

In art and words, the exhibit tells the dramatic stories of women and their families who fled the Soviet Union in the decade after the Russian Revolution and during World War II. Despite the despair, horror and loss each of these families faced, at its core, this exhibit is about love, courage, humility, determination and faith.
