The Diary of Lena Mukhina
Available in Stock
Sixteen-year-old Lena Mukhina lived through the Siege of Leningrad during the years 1941–42 and, through it all, she kept a diary. Translated here for the first time, it constitutes a vivid testimony of how Lena, her family and her fellow citizens fought to stay alive in a living hell that lasted for months through the bitterly cold Russian winter. Her courage and insight make this an absorbing and moving account of the cruelty of war.
