In the introductory episode, we meet Sara Mebel, Russian émigré and family member of Laurie Bernstein who created this oral history. Though Soviet socialism opened many doors to her, Sara paid a price when her father became a victim of Stalin’s Terror. Sara was a loyal Soviet citizen, but open antisemitism after the USSR’s collapse drove her from her homeland forever.
