The Soviet Story and the Unending History. Can There Be a Resurgence of Totalitarian Evil?In commemoration of Europe’s VE-Day and Ukraine’s Remembrance Day, the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation, the Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences, and Slavic-American Sokol invite you for a viewing of the award-winning documentary, The Soviet Story, followed by an open discussion. This film reflects on the tragic chapters of history when Europe was plagued by two totalitarian regimes, German Nazism and Soviet Communism. The fall of the Berlin Wall signified what appeared to be “the end of history” in 1989. Yet, three decades later the world remains threatened by a new “cold war” and a global military conflict. Can the Soviet story help us understand today’s challenges for peace and unity in Europe? Introduction by: Dr. Peter Voitsekhovsky, USUF Research Director and the author of Emancipation from Doublethink. Essays on Post-Soviet Politics. When: Friday, May 4, at 6 pm Where: U.S.-Ukraine Foundation Conference Room, 1090 Vermont Avenue NW, Suite 600 (SIIA), Washington, DC 20005 RSVP REQUIRED … EMAIL: – SPACE IS LIMITED
