What did it mean to grow up in the Soviet Union during the Second World War? In the late 1970s, Svetlana Alexievich started interviewing people who had experienced war as children, the generation that survived and had to live with the trauma that would forever change the course of the Russian nation. With great care and empathy, Alexievich gives voice to those whose stories are lost in the official narratives and offers a portrait of the human consequences of the war. Published in the USSR in 1985 and now available in English for the first time.
