Impressions (from a New Zealand perspective) of the history of the IDS and its Symposia
The IDS was created and has flourished for the last 50 years thanks to the voluntary work and dedication of countless outstanding individuals from many countries of the globe inspired by what Dostoevsky and his works have meant to them and to world culture. Here are the memories of one of the IDS founding members Irene Zohrab, who has attended most of IDS Symposia from its very beginning. The impressions are followed by Appendices with unpublished photos and with press materials concerning the first IDS Symposium in Bad Ems.
