Lest We Forget, Nov. 7, 1917

Lest we forget: On November 7,1917, 96 years ago, a putsch occurred in Petrograd (now St. Petersburg) Russia. The take-over was known as the “Great October Socialist Revolution.” Proclaimed was the world’s first Communist state, a state that crumbled 74 years later, after murdering millions and dispatching millions to the gulag. Nobody ever dreamed that the “Communist god” would fail and that today we would have a Jewish community in Russia which revived from nothing after years of Soviet persecution.

Much of the story of “Klara’s Journey,” takes place during the Russian Civil War (1918-22) which followed the Bolshevik seizure of power. Her story is a tale of “betrayal, high drama and love.”
