Arizona’s 7 million people all have unique stories to tell and perspectives to share. One such Arizonan, retired University of Arizona educator Dr. Galina De Roeck, has one of those one-in-a-million life odysseys.
It spans three continents and some of the most turbulent events of the 20th century: fleeing the Russian Revolution, surviving the World War II in Europe, witnessing the independence of Morocco, seeking a new life in Australia and then the United States, ultimately Arizona.
Released by Tucson-based PRAV Publishing, that journey is now a memoir, “The Door in the Nightmare: From the Russian Revolution to Pax Americana.”
