ARAA-Otrada Board members participate in the Russians Abroad Museum (May 2019)
Over the course of several years and the 'collective' work of ARAA-Otrada members, a treasure trove of mementos, documents, and historical artifacts were assembled and shipped to the Russian Abroad Museum (музей русского зарубежья) in Moscow, Russia. Many of these items, chronicling the life of Russians abroad, are already on display, while others are being cataloged and/or restored to be incorporated in future displays at the museum.
We would especially like to recognize our past President Dr Nikita Tregubov for his leadership in this initiative and Ludmila Selinsky for her coordinating and gathering of items donated to the museum.
If you ever find yourself traveling to Moscow - we suggest a trip to this museum to see the exhibits and appreciate the tremendous courage and resolve of our forefathers who left their beloved motherland to establish new roots in foreign countries.
