Russia and Ukraine are top news stories today. All of us should care about what's happening. Olga Gladky Verro knows Russia's history first-hand. Under Stalin's dictatorship, her father was relentlessly persecuted while Bolsheviks weree building socialist "paradise" called the Soviet Union. Her family lived in Ukraine and escaped to the West, surviving in the labor camps in Germany. As refugees their lives were shaped by the historical events of the period. Today, we are seeing a lot of Russia and Ukraine in the news. What's happening today ties into what has happened in the past. The socialist Soviet past could become democracy's perilous future. Verro is an author-editor-memoirist who has collected and published, "Voices From the Past: A Collection of Short Stories Preserving Facts", and "Thoughts for Posterity to Pause and Ponder: Russia-Soviet Union: 1917-1971" by Orest M,.
