I never had grandparents. My dad's family died young and my mom's family was kulak. My grandfather was thrown into a ditch in Zhitomir after being executed in 1937 and my grandmother died in 1931 of typhus in a transit camp near Tomsk. They don't even have graves. At least now, after many years of silence the world is learning of the pain people like my mom lived through.

It's about time!!
