The Littlest Enemies

by Deborah Hoffman

Hoffman’s superb translation of Children of the Gulag is a profoundly significant indictment of the Soviet regime. A collection of memoirs, letters and dossiers of children condemned to spend time in the camps (excerpted in Russian Life, Nov/Dec 2007), it reminds that all too often children are the forgotten victims of adults’ utopian dreams.

— Paul E. Richardson
