Love the postcards. What was it like living in the Soviet Union? I consider myself a communist, but only as much as an American can be which is unfortunate...
Where do I start? I was only a child and I knew nothing of communism, socialism or politics. I had a very happy childhood (even if it contained Lenin’s portrait on the wall of kindergarten’s rooms). There were hardships, but we made it. And I remember this. I was never once scared of strangers. People then, they cared. They helped readily, sincerely, even strangers. Seeing this in old movies still makes me cry.
just WOW. amazing. are you from URSS? (kidding:)) but still... sad whats going on) how did you get a hold of there preciousnesses? congrats i love it i'm never gonna give regular birthday cards from now on because of you :)
I come from what is supposed to be the last Soviet generation. Most of the postcards I post here are from my friends’ collections, fair few are from my own. Thank you, I love getting feedback! :D
