The day the Berlin Wall came down.

Lest We Forget: 25 years ago, the Berlin Wall came down, a great day for freedom and the beginning of the end of the former Soviet Union. Yet today, anti-Americanism is once again a pillar of the Kremlin ideology, just as it was then and as it was 100 years ago, when Klara Rasputnis left Odessa to reach America. For a story of “betrayal, high drama and love,” check out “Klara’s Journey,” an historical novel, Wherever books are sold, http://amzn.to/13Sp769.
