Natalya Rapoport, the recipient of the W.W. Clyde Chair in the College of Engineering at the University of Utah, will speak Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church, 569 S. 1300 East in Salt Lake City.

Rapoport is a member of "Memorial" a democratic movement that lobbied for a memorial to the victims of totalitarianism and continues to oppose the violent anti-Semitism of "Pamyat." The Memorial political movement began before "peristroika" made activism safe. Rapoport will discuss the book she has written about her father, Yacov Rapoport, the only survivor of the so-called "Doctors Plot" against Stalin that resulted in widespread arrests and persecution.The forum is open to the public.
