Silence Was Salvation
Child Survivors of Stalinís Terror and World War II in the Soviet Union

Cathy A. Frierson

Roughly ten million children were victims of political repression in the Soviet Union during the Stalinist era, the sons and daughters of peasants, workers, scientists, physicians, and political leaders considered by the regime to be dangerous to the political order. Ten grown victims, who as children suffered banishment, starvation, disease, anti-Semitism, and trauma resulting from their parentsí condemnation and arrest, now freely share their stories.† The result is a powerful and moving oral history that will profoundly deepen the readerís understanding of life in the U.S.S.R. under the despotic reign of Joseph Stalin.
