Against the Current: The Memoirs of Boris Ragula, MD (Footprints Series) by Boris Ragula

McGill-Queens University Press is proud to announce Footprints Series edited by renowned McGill University historian Suzanne Morton. The life stories of individual women and men who were participants in interesting events help nuance larger historical narratives, at times reinforcing those narratives, at others contradicting them. Footprints introduces extraordinary Canadians, past and present, who have led fascinating and important lives at home and throughout the world. A Polish citizen of Belarusan descent, Boris Ragula escaped German internment during World War II only to find on his return to Belarus that it had fallen under the control of Soviet totalitarianism. He was imprisoned by the Communist secret police but finally escaped with his family to Belgium. Ragula earned a medical degree and then fulfilled his dream of immigrating to Canada, where for forty years he ran one of the busiest practices in London, Ontario, and played a pioneering role in the North American anti-smoking movement.
