Backstory: Post Soviet Poland

Thursday, April 15, 2010

We’ll take a look at how Poland has changed in the 20 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union—and at the fallout from last week’s tragic plane crash—on today’s Backstory segment. We’ll be joined by Timothy Snyder, Professor of History at Yale University and a Poland expert. Mr. Snyder is also the author of The Red Prince: The Secret Lives of a Habsburg Archduke. You can hear Leonard’s interview with Prof. Snyder about Post-Soviet Ukraine here.

Thank you Leonard, you are doing superb job in avery corner...
To Mr. Snyder thanks for the truth; Putin's regime is trying to cover up Stalin's Hitler connection, attempiting to rewrite history.
Reminder beside Katin there were other places like Ostaszkow, Harkow, Miednoye, Cvierdlovsk etc.; where Polish POW where mass murdered.
