American History: JFK issue
The JFK issue–a momentous episode in American history–presents another area of interest for Ernst Titovets. As Lee Harvey Oswald’s close English-speaking friend in Russia he got to know him very well. “Erich [Ernst Titovets]...is my oldest existing acquaintance...a friend of mine who speaks English very well…” as Oswald would put it in his Historic Diary. In his book Oswald: Russian Episode Ernst Titovets investigates the Russian period of life and activity of Lee Harvey Oswald, an alleged assassin of JFK.The book is based mainly on the author’s first-hand experience of knowing Oswald. It also includes the author’s interviews with many Russians who met Oswald, there are documents with Oswald’s longhand never published before, unique transcripts of the audio recordings of Oswald and Titovets reading stories, enacting plays, giving mock interviews to one another. The book presents a culmination of the Author’s painstaking research conducted over many years to reveal the true character of Oswald, a close-up of this still largely misunderstood man.
