Vossler, Ronald Julius. We’ll Meet Again in Heaven: Germans in the Soviet Union Write Their American Relatives. North Dakota State University Libraries, Germans from Russia Heritage Collection, Fargo, North Dakota, 2001.
"I have recently read Ronald J. Vossler's book, We'll Meet Again in Heaven. Would you please express to the author that it was my pleasure to meet him in Grand Forks at the "Author's Day" at Barnes & Noble, and of my great gratitude for writing this book.
I hope this book receives a wide reading as it describes an heroic clinging to life by a a people oppressed by a cruel political machine.
I'm glad that many of the people opted to come to America where they have become solid citizens and many are my close personal friends. This is a story that has needed to be told."
