Why Soviet People Never Threw Away Newspapers
Soviets never threw anything away - they were akin to hoarders, waiting for some long-forgotten object to become useful again in some way. But what was the point of keeping tons of newspapers?
From my experience, of having lived in Russia shortly after the break up of the Soviet Union, I encountered the many uses of well...newspaper. In fact, I became fascinated by it.
And. what fascinated me most of all, was the sheer creativeness in its many very useful uses - from being used as an absolutely perfect window frame insulator to preserving my Russian (shepka) hat, during the summer months - preventing the fur hairs from falling out, as well as helping it to maintain its form.
This meeting is intended to have a look at life in Soviet Russia, and how the people lived during those times - times which were not as quite bad as people in the West are led to believe.
