Info

Learn about the challenges faced in the former Soviet Union by a poet, a doctor, a Jewish refusenik, a singer, a teacher, an historian, a scientist and several writers during the Brezhnev regime from 1964 to 1982. Sharing a common opposition to the policies of the Soviet government, these people were censored or accused of anti-Soviet agitation or were jailed or were sent into exile.

Ken Poppe had a teaching career in the public schools of Westport, Farmington and West Hartford and at The Ethel Walker School in Simsbury. He visited the former Soviet Union in the 1980s and has studied Russian language, literature, and history. He has presented lectures at the University of Hartford President's College.
