Subject: [Kresy-Siberia] Australian Radio Mention
Hi, For those avid readers amongst us you may want to listen to this and perhaps read the book. (I have not read it yet but have read one of his previous novels.)
This story seems to be a testament to the importance of personal histories. This time from a survivor of the Holocaust.
"Summary: Elliot Perlman discusses his latest novel The Street Sweeper.

I am posting this to say that I sent a short response to the radio station last week (Radio National-Australia) which was read on air today. In my response I mentioned how as the daughter of a survivor of the Russian Labour Camps I am very aware of how important it is that peoples stories are told. I am pleased to report that I credited the Kresy -Siberia site for helping so much in my research !
So we got a mention on National Radio!Woo hoo !
Thats all ! Danielle
