CEERES of Voices: Victoria Smolkin - "A Sacred Space Is Never Empty"

Monday, April 8, 2019

On April 8, 2019, please Join CEERES for a conversation with author Victoria Smolkin about her new book, A Sacred Space is Never Empty.

When the Bolsheviks set out to build a new world in the wake of the Russian Revolution, they expected religion to die off. Soviet power used
a variety of tools--from education to propaganda to terror—to turn its vision of a Communist world without religion into reality. Yet even with its
monopoly on ideology and power, the Soviet Communist Party never succeeded in overcoming religion and creating an atheist society.
