In episode two, we learn of the deadly pogrom in Sara's Belarusan town when Sara was just 12 days old. Like many Soviet Jews after the Bolshevik Revolution, Sara's family left the Pale of Settlement, where Jews had been confined since the late 18th century, for Russia proper, moving to Saratov and then Astrakhan during Lenin’s “New Economic Policy.” New episodes are available every Wednesday from August 1 to October 17, 2018.
