Watch American Experience: The Great Famine at 8:00 p.m. Monday, April 11 on Wisconsin Public Television.

Considered one of the worst natural disasters in Europe, the Russian famine of 1921 is a prime example of the American tradition to help people. For two years Americans fed millions of people in Soviet Russia to save them from Starvation.  Nearly a century later we continue this trend by helping people in countries all over the world recover from natural disasters – yet another reason I’m proud to be an American.
