"Who are the Rusyns?" DVD ($25)

This DVD is professionally presented by John Righetti, President Emeritus, and explains the complicated history of the Rusyn people. This “hard copy” should be in every Rusyn home simply because it will be referred to often and hopefully shared with others. One realizes how close the Rusyns were to becoming extinct and gives great hope for the future as we are now recognized as an ethnic minority by many countries.
