- Exhibit: Prisoners of the Great War Send Home Picture Postcards
A new exhibit: Prisoners of the Great War Send Home Picture Postcards, by Dr Alexander Kolchinski is available in the RVG! This exhibit explores an unusual phenomenon: relatively abundant picture postcards (PPCs) in the mail of the prisoners of the Great War (1914 - 1918). The imagery of these postcards conveyed additional meanings to the correspondence of POWs and provides important primary evidence of human conditions of the prisoners in warring countries.
- Cavendish auction
The Cavendish Auction (http://www.cavendish-auctions.com/the-francois-piat-dewavrin-crimean-war/) offers a striking collection of Crimean War mail. There are just a few items of Russian postal history, lots of British mail, but overall amazing.
- Soliciting articles for the fall Journal
As editor, I'd like to invite you to write for the Rossica Journal. Remember, your Journal is only as good as the articles between its covers. So far, our joint efforts have garnered a Gold medal for the Journal at NAPEX 2015. It's an fine honor, but life continues, and the next Journal needs a few more stories. Please contribute! If you wish to discuss details you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Remember: if not us - then who? If not now - then when? Looking forward to hearing from you real soon!
