A Polish citizen of Belarusian descent, Boris Ragula escaped German internment during World War II only to find on his return to Belarus that it had fallen under the control of Soviet totalitarianism. He was imprisoned by the Communist secret police but finally escaped with his family to Belgium. Ragula earned a medical degree and then fulfilled his dream of immigrating to Canada, where for forty years he ran one of the busiest practices in London, Ontario, and played a pioneering role in the North American anti-smoking movement.
