Thank you for your article about our wonderful women’s philanthropy mission to Latvia and Russia. The important history of the refusenik movement has been largely forgotten and almost unknown in the younger community. I urge your readers to watch the movie “Refusenik” on Amazon Prime. These were extremely courageous men and women who risked everything just to be Jewish. Many Jews and non-Jews, especially several political leaders in the U.S., rallied to rescue them with the cry of “let my people go.”
Perhaps the Chronicle could do an educational piece one day about this proud moment in recent Jewish history.
