The launch of the book "SWEET SNOW" by Dr. Alexander Motyl!

Dr. Motyl has taught at Columbia University, Lehigh University, and Harvard University and is currently professor of political science at Rutgers University-Newark.
SWEET SNOW is set in the Ukraine in the winter of 1933. While a terrible famine rages in the countryside, the secret police are arresting suspected spies in the cities. A German aristocrat from Prussia, a Jewish communist from New York, a Polish diplomat from Lviv, and a Ukrainian nationalist from Vienna come to share a cell. As they are being transported, their van overturns and they are freed - to wander amidst the devastated villages, desolate landscapes, and frozen corpses. As they struggle to survive, they come to grips with the horror of the famine as well as with their own delusions, weaknesses, and mortality.
