An amazing love story. Lev survived a Nazi concentration camp only to find himself serving a long prison sentence in one of Stalin's labor camps in Siberia. Against unbelievable odds he and his true love Sveta were able to correspond with one another. Even more remarkably, ALL of their letters survived, giving the reader an unprecedented glimpse into life in post WWII Russia and Stalin's Gulag, and into this very special relationship that defied the Soviet government.
