Overcoming ethnic rivalry

The Managing Editor of the Slavic editions of The Herald of Christian Science, Cornelia Schacht, recently made a field trip to Russia and Latvia to record testimonies of healing for the shortwave Herald broadcasts in Russian.

Dr. Schacht was born in Prague, and educated in Czechoslovakia and in Germany, receiving her doctorate in Slavic philology at the University of Munich. She speaks four languages fluently.

During her trip she attended a groundbreaking Christian Science lecture given by Hildegard Arnesen, in Russian, in the Latvian city of Riga, where people all understand Russian but have long resisted using the language of those they view as their former oppressors. Dr. Schacht also attended Christian Science church services in Riga and St. Petersburg.
