Those Who Knew Lee Harvey Oswald In Minsk Tell Their Stories
If you want to know who Lee Harvey Oswald was, you should also know where he was. For more than two years in the early 1960s, the capital of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic was Oswald's home. To mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, RFE/RL conducted exclusive interviews with three people who knew Oswald during his time in Minsk. It is the first time the interviewees -- including Stanislau Shushkevich, the first post-Soviet leader of Belarus and the person who taught Oswald to speak Russian -- have appeared on camera to tell their stories.
