One part of the project is "Letters from Siberia." "Letters" explores original rare letters and photographs of persons forcibly deported to Siberia. Although the Soviet Union censored all correspondences, the letters nonetheless offer a view into the deportees' daily lives, concerns, and hardships.
 
Many aspects of the “Hope and Spirit” program, including a virtual tour of the exhibit itself, are available on the website: www.HOPEandSPIRIT.net


You are cordially invited to register for the Banquet. Open and fill out the Form below and send the Check to the address indicated.                  Deadline is May 2nd, 2016.


As always, weather permitting, Sunday May 8th will do a bicycle ride around Madison.
