US Consul General Opens the Exhibit "Under the Sign of the Red Cross"
12.08.2006 13:55

US Consul General On December 6, US Consul General Mary Kruger attended the opening ceremony of the exhibit "Under the Sign of the Red Cross". The exhibit documents the true story of how the American Red Cross saved more than 800 Petrograd children cut off from their families by the events of the Russian Civil War. The children had been sent to the Urals to escape the hardships of cold and starvation during the winter of 1918. The American Red Cross Mission in Siberia cared for the children for two and a half years and transported them safely back to their families in Petrograd in a chartered ship via Vladivostok, Japan, San Francisco, the Panama Canal, New York, and Finland. The Red Cross exhibit was organized by Olga Molkina, a local author, the descendant of two of those children and supported by the City Administration. It will be open through February at the Children's City Library at ul. Marata 72.
