Ayn Rand's Home Atmosphere: Her Family in Russia

Dina Schein Federman

Presented at: OCON 2005

Date: Jul 02, 2005

For more than 10 years after she left Russia, Ayn Rand corresponded regularly with her family, whom she loved and who were left behind. What was the home atmosphere in which she was born and spent her childhood and teenage years? Dr. Schein will present each member of Miss Rand's family as an individual who was important to her and whom you might like to meet. What were each person's interests, aspirations and convictions? What activities filled their daily lives? What relationship did each of them have with Miss Rand? What was their attitude toward her person, her work and the events of her new life in America? In this talk you will discover each family member's personality and character traits. Dr. Schein will also allow you to hear these individuals speak for themselves by reading excerpts from the correspondence they wrote to Miss Rand.
