Description
On September 8, 1941, Hitler's forces began a siege of Leningrad that was to last for 872 days. By the end, in January 1944, half a million soldiers, and as many as a million of the city's starving defenders, had perished. Literary translator Caroline Walton, who also penned The Voice of Leningrad, was able to interview survivors of the siege in 1999. Their stories describe humanity at its utter limit, encompassing desperation, dread, grief, famine, murder, and even cannibalism. But these are also stories of courage, camaraderie, fortitude, music, passion, and pride, and of an elusive yet ineffably human quality that allows hungry people to survive the worst that human experience can yield.
