November 17, 2007
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Linkages, I would like to thank
you for speaking at a Linkages public meeting about your life and your
autobiography, Under Three Empires.
One of the goals of the Linkages organization is to promote an
understanding of Russian culture and history. Through your account of
your life, you gave us new insight into what it was like to live in
Russia during the last half of the twentieth century.
Your talk was very lucid and interesting. I personally enjoyed
reading your book. The strength you showed throughout your life, both
here and in the Soviet Union, in facing the many adversities and
challenges you encountered along the way is a source of inspiration to
those who read this book.
It was an honor for us to have you speak to us and a pleasure to get to
know you in planning this event. I hope that we will see you again at
future Linkages events.
Paul L. Caccamise President
