Curious how it was to live in Soviet Union / behind the Iron Curtain? I'm Zenta Brice, AmA.
I'll be here shortly to answer any questions you might have on living an ordinary citizens life in the Soviet Union: raising a family under communist rule, experiencing the fall of the Iron Curtain, accidentally toppling a government, Baltic States declaring independence and what to expect if Russia gets a chance to restore its grip on Europe again.
Daily struggles (Plenty of money to spend! But nothing available in the shops. Very eco-friendly toilet paper. But not by choice.) to big politics (the "free" world saying "shut up" when they should support us) - I'll do my best to share how it was! Ask on!
I have just published a book about living in soviet union and how it was when it crumbled too!
Thanks for all your questions and amazing responses so far. I need to take a coffee break, will be back in 30 minutes to continue replying to questions!Back now, continuing! Keep the fantastic questions coming in!
Edit 2: Huge thanks for all your questions and your time. I will be back tomorrow to follow up. I really truly appreciate depth and insight shared in the questions here today! In the meantime - my book is available, consider checking out the book preview and supporting my next one.
