The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
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.
