National Czech and Slovak Museum launching oral history program

The National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is launching a new oral history program to gather personal stories, family sagas, and community histories of communist-era (1948-89) émigrés from Czechoslovakia who settled in Chicago, Washington DC, and Cleveland.

Of course, that would include Ruysns who were citizens of Communist Czechoslovakia.

They're in the process of setting up the framework and plan on interviewing in June, in these three cities. 

If you fit the criteria, or know someone who does, or can give the project any leads, please contact
Rosie Johnston, Project Coordinator, 319-362-8500 ext. 214, or Dave Muhlena, Project Director, 319-362-8500 ext. 202.
