Book Description

Among Soviet-Jewish immigrants to the United States in the 1970s, more than 10,000 came from the Black Sea port and resort of Odessa. In this book, Dr. Friedberg has drawn upon many hours of conversation with more than a hundred of these immigrants to convey the flavour of the Soviet city's cultural life in the middle decades of the 20th century. The study was conducted under the auspices of the Soviet Interview Project headquartered at the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign.
