About the Event

Join us to hear Ernie Hurwitz read excerpts from his fascinating memoir about his personal experiences in Russia in 1959. Ernie was a 27-year-old project manager responsible for constructing the model home kitchen that was the setting for “The Kitchen Debate” between President Nixon and Premier Khrushchev, a symbolic moment in the Cold War. Ernie built the house and witnessed the debate. His memoir shares some of his experiences as an American working in Russia…with missiles pointing in each direction.
