"Sasha is the life-story of Alexander Malinsky, a Ukrainian Jew who grew up in Stalin's Soviet Union. He endured the endemic anti-Semitic discrimination rampant throughout Russia, managed against all odds to achieve a higher education and eventually established himself as a respected electronics design engineer. But when the opportunity came his way, he and his family left the Soviet Union, came to Seattle, and began the arduous task of adapting to a new environment: new language and new "rules." Now, in his late seventies, he enjoys his retirement and the opportunity to have his story told. It is a story of determined perseverance and success, reflecting a little-known or long-forgotten chapter in the history of his people." -- Unedited summary from book.
