Event description

Description

Author Professor Yuri Slezkine, UC Berkeley in conversation with Bertrand Patenaude, Hoover Institute, Stanford

Co-sponsored by the Institute of Historical Study.

In time for the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, here is an unforgettable story of revolution, terror, and a building. This book’s gripping narrative tells the true story of the residents of an enormous Moscow apartment building where top Communist officials and their families lived before they were destroyed in Stalin’s purges. A vivid account of the personal and public lives of Bolshevik true believers, the book begins with their conversion to Communism and ends with their children’s loss of faith and the fall of the Soviet Union.
