Ashes in the Snow is based on the 2011 novel Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys, a Lithuanian-American writer who based it on the true story of Irena Spakauskiene, a 13-year-old Lithuanian girl who was deported from Lithuania to Siberia in 1941.

And then Penguin’s sub-rights team and the international agents sold the book in over 22 countries. I can barely wrap my head around it. I’m so grateful, and when I think of all of the people who thought this story would never be told I’m overcome with emotion.” Between Shades of Gray has sold one million copies, has been translated into 27 languages and has also been included on the US high school literature reading list.

In connection to an April visit to Washington DC, the Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite stated at a private screening of the film at the Capitol building that Ashes in the Annihilation Snow is a testimony of truth about Lithuania, and that it’s a true story about Lithuania’s destiny, deportations, sufferings, and unconditional fight for freedom.
