Product Description


Wonderful ... an amazing panoramic view ... I've rarely read anything like it (Claire Tomalin)

Awesome ... one of the most unforgettable books I have ever read. I defy anyone to read it without weeping at its human suffering, cruelty and courage ... a celebration of family love in an epoch of hellish cruelty ... now in this book these righteous heroes have their rightful memorial (Simon Sebag Montefiore Mail on Sunday)

This is a heart-rending book ... its importance cannot be overestimated ... This book should be made compulsory reading in Russia today (Antony Beevor, author of Stalingrad)

A masterful account of lost and stolen lives (Sunday Times)


'Wonderful ... I've rarely read anything like it'


'My book of the year'


'The most haunting history I have read in years'

Book Description

'Here is history that goes beyond explorations of great events, investigating the inner lives of those Soviet millions forced to whisper ... saves myriad voices from oblivion'
