On his book The Victims Return: Survivors of the Gulag After Stalin

Cover Interview of February 14, 2011

In a nutshell

The story of survivors of the Jewish Holocaust is widely known.  The story of surviving victims of Stalin’s 25-year terror is virtually unknown in the West—and even in Russia itself.  The Victims Return tells that story.  I focus on a wide array of survivors—including many I knew personally in Moscow in the 1970s and 1980s.
