A turbulent history of young Jewish conscripts
Ever since he can remember, Boris Ramatsky has known the old wooden building with Stars of David over its windows in the center of Tomsk, Siberia. He’d pass it on his way to and from school as a child, and then to and from work as an adult. No plaque mark...
A child survivor returns to open a building, and also reopens long-forgotten memories
