Marti: The Unexpected Christmas

Woven Threads: Stories from Afar

It’s early on a cold and grey November morning in 1956. It’s her brother’s 15th birthday, but today there’ll be no celebration. Marti and her brother are told to dress in several layers of clothing and be ready for an adventure. Carrying only one briefcase between them the family scrambles onto the back of a truck filled with strangers. The children were instructed to say, if asked, that they are on their way to a wedding somewhere in the countryside. For some reason, this does not surprise them. Possibly, having lived through a bloody revolution they are primed for just about anything. After being stopped a few times along the way by good natured soldiers who’re ready to believe any story, they arrive at a country farmhouse late that night. After a bowl of soup and some rest, Marti and her family set off on a daring and dangerous journey signposted by hope and compassion. This is a story verging on the miraculous—Christmas angels, Vienna, and a land of plenty.
