Back in '87 I filmed Yevegeny Yevtushenko at a poetry reading, specifically his reading of his poem Babi Yar, of which there's a wealth of detail via google, it concerns the nazi massacre of the Jews in the Ukraine. I asked him to sign a poster for me which he did but in Russian which I can't read. Sourpus has volunteered to try and translate it for me for which I shall be eternally grateful, it's been on my wall these many years I've often wondered what he wrote. Sourpus, I realise the dot structure might make it difficult but anything you can decipher will be fine, Thanks.
