This event is now fully booked

A Hair Raising Account of the Titanic Battle and Siege which turned the tide of World War II (the Great Patriotic War)

Edward Ochagavia was born in Stalingrad in 1937. His father was an American engineer working as a leading specialist in the Stalingrad Tractor Factory, and his mother was a Russian office worker in the same factory. During the Stalingrad battle and siege (87 days from autumn 1942 until spring 1943), his sister, aged 14-15 at that time and he, aged about 6, were not evacuated from the city and were eye-witnesses of the battle and the first days of the town's siege.

This talk is the account of what his sister and he saw and knew of the battle and how they survived.

This is a GB Russia Society event and all are welcome.
