Cleveland Slovenian American Heritage Foundation President Anthony Hiti introduced Dr. Vladimir Rus who spoke about the history of the city of Trieste.
During the Q&A session, a woman recited and asked about a poem called the Chrome-plated Soldiers of Trieste.
Dr. Rus answered a question about Fascists and Neo-Fascists and told story of what happened to him in Trieste when he refused to give the Fascist salute.
Dr. Vladimir Rus answered a question about an Italian region that led to a discussion of the origin of the word 'Slave.'
NOTE: DR. Vladimir Rus will be inducted into the 20120 Class of the Cleveland International Hall of Fame
