Katarina Skoberne: Family History Repeating

Does history repeat itself? Entrepreneur Katarina Skoberne describes how in her family's case it did, and discusses the thought-provoking lessons it taught her.

Katarina's great-grandfather was an admiral in the Russian imperial navy. His life was often interrupted by disaster, and he twice lost everything and was forced to start again.

But Katarina recently discovered some of his writing, and more than 100 years later found interesting parallels to her own life and experiences.
