Lessons and legacies for child survivors.
This groundbreaking book offers a comprehensive documentary history of children whose parents were identified as enemies of the Soviet regime from its inception through to Joseph Stalin's death. When parents were arrested, executed, or sent to the Gulag, their children also suffered. Millions of children, labeled 'socially dangerous', lost parents, homes, and siblings. Co-edited by Cathy A. Frierson, a senior American scholar, and Semyon S. Vilensky, Gulag survivor and compiler of the Russian documents, the book offers documentary and personal perspectives. The editors present top-secret documents in translation from the Russian state archives, memoirs, and interviews with child survivors. The editors' narrative reveals how such prolonged child victimization could occur, who knew about it, and who tried to intervene on the children's behalf. The editors show how the emotions from childhood trauma persist into the twenty-first century, passing from victims to their children and grandchildren. Interviews with child survivors also display their resilient ability to fashion productive lives despite family destruction and stigma. (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9780300122930 20160603

Rosa Luxemburg holds an enduring fascination as a radical socialist committed to democratic values, and a woman whose charismatic personality and impassioned speeches inspired her followers without resort to bureaucratic organization. Her assistant and friend, Mathilde Jacob, was Luxemburg's mainstay during her years of imprisonment in World War I. Jacob provided material and emotional support, organized Rosa Luxemburg's clandestine communication with the outside world, and herself played a key role in the illegal work of the Spartacus group. When revolution broke out in Germany in 1918, she sought unsuccessfully to pretect Rosa in the tragic events that led to her death. Mathilde Jacob's memoir, written as a testimony of "love for a person and for a cause", and sent abroad for safe-keeping when she fell victim to the Nazis, was unknown to Rosa Luxembourg's early biographers. It paints a vivd portrait of the subject, and of the group of friends that made up the Spartacus leadership - Karl Liebknecht, Leo Kpgiches, Clara Zetkin and Paul Levi.
