Alexander Rempel, oldest son of Jakob Aron Rempel (1883-1941), promised his father that his father's story would not be forgotten. The account is primarily the story of a beloved father, whose forcible removal from the family left an indelible mark on his wife and children. It is the story of a man who was passionately devoted to his Mennonite people. It is the story of a man who, given the choice between recanting his faith to regain his freedom or being subjected to repeated torture and eventually imprisonment in exile, did not bend in his resolve to faithfulness. Unfortunately, illness and death prevented Alexander Rempel from completing his research and writing the story. His niece Amalie Enns finished the project. The books also includes translations of the letters written by Aeltester Jakob Rempel from exile.
