Adriana Corderu: Quest for Freedom
by David Palladino

During the Cold War the world revolved around the conflict between the theologies of communism and democracy. The two main protagonists in this conflict were the United States in the West and the Soviet Union in the East.

During the Second World War, British and American political leaders kept an uncomfortable eye on their eastern ally, the Soviet Union. It hadnít taken long after the conflict for the shaky alliance to fall apart and the Cold War began. During the late 1940s, the West formed a system of alliances designed to prevent any perceived threat to their power structure. By 1959 the battle lines of the Cold War had been drawn.

As the Soviet Union watched, the United States suffered a substantial defeat with the fall of Indochina to communists in 1975. By the late 1970s it seemed that the United States was losing the Cold War.

As Eastern Bloc leaders began to tighten restrictions in the lives of their people, commensurate with their increase in power, there began to emerge, in the East, a group of young people, hard and idealistic, adventurous and courageous. These would become the heroes of the movement of their time. These were the brave young souls who, with inspiration from the new American president, inflicted the first substantial cracks in the wall commonly known as the Iron Curtain.

This is the story of one of those brave young spirits. This is the story of Adriana Corderu.
