Connections: Myroslav Marynovych on his book, "The Universe Behind Barbed Wire"

Sep 27, 2021

How do we hold totalitarians responsible? How do we guard against the return of some of the worst evils of mankind? Myroslav Marynovych was imprisoned in a Soviet Gulag for seven years. He was a prisoner of conscience, locked away for pushing for human rights.

His new memoir was published by the University of Rochester Press, and he’s visiting the university to discuss his vision for human rights. But first, we talk with him on Connections. Our guests: 

  • Myroslav Marynovych, author of "The Universe Behind Barbed Wire"
  • Randy Stone, chair of the Department of Political Science, and director of the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester​​
