Perhaps the fact that she was born in a Displaced Persons camp in southern Germany at the end of the war played a role. Her parents and other relatives were fleeing Stalin's scourge of their Ukrainian homeland when Anastasia Maria Shkilnyk was born near Wasserburg,Germany on August 22, 1945. Her father, the much-respected Judge, Mikhialo Shkilnyk had been renowned for his scrupulous fairness in every matter he adjudicated; not the kind of person the Soviet regime wanted around. His strong belief in absolute justice certainly had an effect on the developing mind of the young Anastasia. Undoubtedly, the seemingly unlimited caring, compassion and Christian charity that her mother, Maria (Salamon) Shkilnyk gave to the world's downtrodden also played a role.

It is not, yet, free. He was reading the latest Internet reports from there only minutes before he died. Tato never gave up...
