 3/15/2014  New story: A secret Ulpan in the Communist Odessa

Hi everybody,

I'd like to tell you about the new article by Anna Aizic called "A secret Ulpan in the Communist Odessa".
While most of our people stories tell us how Jews lived in Odessa in late 19th and early 20th century, this one shows us how lived those who stayed and lived in Communist and KGB's URSS after WWII.
Anna is also finishing a book about his family story going from Odessa to Israel and to the US.

The current version of the book is downloadable from the story page placed at the People Stories section of the kehilalinks.

You can directly access the story here
