Worlds Apart, with Nadia Ragozhina

Two brothers grow up on the Jewish streets of Warsaw. At the turn of the twentieth century, Adolphe leaves to seek work and start a family in Switzerland. Marcus moves east, inspired by his Communist beliefs. In Moscow, he is arrested and exiled. They would never see each other again.

A hundred years later, Marcus’s great-granddaughter, Nadia Ragozhina rediscovers the missing part of her broken family and pieces together the stories hidden for generations.

Join Nadia Ragozhina to find out how she researched an entire century of European history to learn about the journeys of her family and what inspired her to write Worlds Apart. Nadia will be in conversation with Ross Bradshaw.

Nadia Ragozhina was born in Moscow and moved to the UK in 2000. She is a senior journalist at BBC World News and has also worked for BBC World Service Radio and France 24 in Paris. Nadia writes and blogs about sustainability and zero waste living, which, other than books and her family, is her passion in life. She lives in London with her husband and two daughters. Worlds Apart is her first book.
