Being born in a communist country myself, but haven't known how the whole "conversion" started and only seeing the consequences it was moving to hear a story of someone from another country, who witnessed the start of it and narrated it with a child's openness and uncorrupted mind. Incredibly moving story about human stupidity and human heroism on the other side. Beware though - if you are easily moved/even if you are not - do not listen while driving your car. I couldn't see the road as tears were streaming from my eyes...
