Reply with quote

Anything confusing you about the "kick-the-can" politicks of our ancestors' homelands? As a child in the USA in the 1980s, my parents were unable to explain to me the nuances of where my Great-great Grandparents, all of whom emigrated before the 1905 revolutions, came from...I received a tangled explanation of "They're Russian, but, they're really from Poland" for one side of the family, and, for the other, "...but, they're really from Lithuania". Regrettably, was not raised with any of our culture (with the exception of Kruschicki), just 'murican. World history was really never a part of K-12 education, and, I didn't need many history credits in college.

So, a VERY welcome find on Amazon Prime video (as an additional subscription @ $7.99/mo.) is the "Great Courses Signature Collection" which includes the series "A History of Eastern Europe" (at https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B01J2AP7WY/ref=atv_dp_share_cu_r ). There's several good lectures included in that subscription, but this series on Eastern Europe, given by Prof. Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius (who hails from Chicago) is one of the best I've seen so far.

More detail about the series than can be found on Amazon's website is available on the producer's website: https://www.thegreatcourses.com/courses/a-history-of-eastern-europe.html (note, you can't subscribe on the producer's site for $7.99/mo.--the affordable option is only thru Amazon Prime, which is here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B01J2AP7WY/ref=atv_dp_share_cu_r ).
