Olga Bergholz

Olga Bergholz (1910-1975) was a poet and journalist who lived and worked in Leningrad. Her successful literary life was interrupted by family tragedies in the 1930s and imprisonment in 1938. Exonerated in 1939, she went on to become the voice of hope for Leningraders during the Siege, encouraging the starving city’s residents with her speeches and poetry.
