The global consequences of Russia’s war against Ukraine will be discussed by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Anne Applebaum with Madeleine Brand, of NPR station KCRW, at an online event on March 28 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. Free access to the event on Zoom can be obtained by
registering at Eventbrite.

Applebaum received a 2004 Pulitzer Prize for her book Gulag: A History. She is a staff writer at The Atlantic. This month, Applebaum and others from The Atlantic interviewed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Her book Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism was published in 2020. Applebaum spoke about that book at a virtual event hosted by the Washington History Seminar in August 2020. A video of the discussion is on YouTube.

Applebaum is scheduled to deliver the Petryshyn Memorial Lecture at Harvard University’s Ukrainian Research Institute on March 29. Those who register online can view the lecture on Zoom. The event will begin at 5:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time/2:15 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. The title of the lecture is "They Didn't Understand Anything, Just Spoiled People's Lives": Brutality, Incompetence, and Historical Echoes in Russian-occupied Ukraine.

Brand is the host Press Play, a news show on NPR station KCRW, based in Santa Monica. Brand is also the co-host of The Legal Eagle Files, KCRW’s legal affairs podcast.

The March 28 virtual event is being hosted by two Los Angeles-based organizations, Community Advocates, Inc. and Jews United for Democracy and Justice. Videos of previous events hosted by the two organizations can be found on their websites.
