Croatian Native and longtime Clevelander, Sonja Unger describes her time in Cleveland. She begins by discussing how she volunteered to help accommodate newly arrived immigrants. She relates several interesting stories about various immigrants she encountered along the way. She then describes her political involvement in two arenas. The first being Civil Rights, which was mostly her husband's field, but she says she could not let him have all of the fun. She then talks about how she spearheaded the successful campaign to scrap the freeway that was supposed to run through Shaker Heights. She ends the discussion talking about what she used to take her kids to do, and what she likes most about living at Judson Park.
