Editorial Reviews


“A pioneering study.”—Walter Laqueur, editor of The Holocaust Encyclopedia

(Walter Laqueur)

“An essential addition to the budding scholarship on children in the former Soviet Union and to the growing literature on repression and the Gulag under Stalin.”—Lynne Viola, University of Toronto

(Lynne Viola)

"With its rich and interpretive narrative, wide array of sources, and moving photographs, the Frierson and Vilensky volume offers an excellent resource for scholars and students, an essential starting place for research on children's experiences of revolution, civil war, famine, and repression."—Lisa A. Kirschenbaum, The Russian Review
(Lisa A. Kirschenbaum The Russian Review 2010-09-01)

"A significant and sickening book, which… show[s] the stark contrasts between official policies toward Soviet children and their actual experiences."--Anne Applebaum, The New Republic
(Anne Applebaum The New Republic)
