Rosemary Bucci and the Greater Baldwinsville Democratic Alliance invite the public to hear a gripping story of survival in Siberia, and a family's journey to America.
Speaker Alexsandra Vesosky was a child when Stalin's army invaded Poland and Lithuania. Her parents were members of the intelligentsia. As such, they were oppressed by the Stalin government and given only a short time to pack their belongings, gather their children and prepare to board a train for an unknown destination. They had no way of knowing that they would be deposited in the midst of Siberia - abandoned there - to live by their own resourcefulness.
Thanks to Bucci and the Alliance, Vesoski will speak at 7 p.m. Monday Sept. 28 at Canal Walk Caf (c), 23 Syracuse St. in the village. The event includes dessert and coffee at no cost to participants. Seating is limited, so call 638-4148 for reservations by Sept. 21.
