You will conduct an interview with a member of your family that was alive during a significant event that occured in Eastern Europe or Russia during the 20th Century. You will ask ten questions that will help you better understand the situation, politics, and players that were involved in this event. A few examples of events are the Chernobyl nuclear accident, Cuban Missile Crisis, fall of communism in Russia....etc.
You must include your questions, name of relative, relation to you, date of interview, and a one paragraph summary of what you learned from the conversation. Phone conversations are ok, as well as email dialogue.
Examples of questions you can ask might be: "What do you remember about...." "When _____ happened, how old were you?" "How did this event change the way things happened in ____________?"
