Description

Stalin's quarter-century rule in the USSR left 20 million people dead. In the late 1930s, during the height of the terror, one out of every eight Soviet citizens was shot or sent to a concentration camp. This study examines how people recover from such a repressive regime. It talks to prison survivors, writers and retired camp guards. It visits classrooms where teachers struggle to teach pupils a history that has changed dramatically in detail in the past five years. It talks to persecuted human rights activists and those searching for missing parents and grandparents. In the process, the book raises profound questions about the potential victim and executioner in all of us.show more
