Just an announcement to forum members that Dr. Ernst Titovets,

one of Oswald's closest friends in Minsk will have his book,

Oswald:Russian Episode available for purchase at the Dallas

conventions later this month. Andy from the Last Hurrah will

be handling the book at the conferences. As yet the book

unfortunately is not available in bookstores or online(yet).

In the meantime, Dr. Titovets has a website,

I encourage you all to visit his website and get in touch

with Andy if you are interested in purchasing the book but

I just listened to Oswald. Is it Oswald? When he reads Shakespeare he does so with an accent. Then you hear a tape where he is supposed to be a famous killer. You get to hear him say the F word and "Goddamn." His American accent was better.

Thanks for the update, Bernice.

Does anyone in the research community do audio/voice analysis?

Titovet's Oswald tapes from Minsk could be compared to samples from Oswald's statements recorded by the press while he was in custody in Dallas, or to the NO Radio debate to determine if the Minsk Oswald voice recording matches the New Orleans and Dallas Oswald voice recordings.

Just a thought.

His cursing in those days and laughing bring to mind Lee Oswald, not Harvey.

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.

Contents:

Bump. This book is extremely rare & historically significant. We need to get Trine Day or Skyhorse Publishing to print this book and make it available for the masses.

David Lifton highly recommends "Oswald Russian Episode" by Oswald's best friend in Russia, Ernst Titovets.

Web link: http://www.etitovets.com/OSWALD-Russian-Episode.pdf

Oswald’s writings with his observations about the Soviet Union

provided an insight into his political outlook and philosophy of life.

Oswald knew better than to reveal his views in Russia and there was a

very good reason for it. But in our private debates on political sociology

and philosophy he clearly let me see where he stood. His papers,

when they became available much later, only confirmed this having

also demonstrated that his outlook did not change upon returning back

to the States.

[...]

For me, getting to know Oswald better was cutting him down to

size. If I might have viewed him initially as an American VIP, the delusion

was only a short-lived one. Before long there was before me a real down-to-earth man about whom I would have said that nobody is

perfect.

In the divided world of the Cold War period, Oswald and I presented

two opposing mentalities. It was a time when Americans and

Russians viewed each other over the ideological divide, not always

seeing eye to eye on what should be considered right and wrong. I was

a product of the socialist world while Oswald, at his core, belonged to

the capitalist one. It became obvious through our debates, his attitude

to local values and other telling signs. But it never stood in the way

of our friendship. To the contrary, through him I learned, first-hand,

things about his American world that the Iron Curtain had effectively

prevented me from reaching otherwise.
