Historian Douglas Smith gave an illustrated talk about his book: The Russian Job: The Forgotten Story of How America Saved the Soviet Union from Ruin. In 1921, millions of Soviet citizens faced starvation in one of the worst famines in history. Vladimir Lenin’s new Soviet government asked Herbert Hoover’s American Relief Administration for help, and Douglas Smith argued that this was one of the largest humanitarian efforts in history.
