Souvenirs from Kyiv by Chrystyna Lucyk- Berger

A collection of short stories from before, during and after WWII - the position and life of ordinary Ukrainians in their struggle against Russian imperialism. A map, a glossary and the historical background leading to the present conflict help anyone who is not very familiar with this country's complicated history. The stories are as expected of endurance, survival, family ties and it is somewhat sad that we are still being greedy to acquire and overlord someone else without being happy with what we have. An absolutely necessary read for present times. Sent by Bookouture for an unbiased review, courtesy of Netgalley.


  1. Sounds like a good collection and a map would be helpful for many readers.
