Comment: I grew up during the 60's

(See in situ)

I grew up during the 60's

and 70's. My brother and sister grew up during the 50's and 60's.
I was taught in school, and by my parents, and had the perception derived from society, that the people of the S.U. were victims of dictators and that there was a possibility of a nuclear war. I never felt hatred toward Russians or thought that anyone wanted me to feel that way. I had, and have, the understanding that the majority of (former) Soviet people were/are good people that wanted freedom the same way that all people do.
