Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Journey into the Whirlwind, Eugenia Semyonovna Ginzburg, translated from Russian by Paul Stevenson and Max Hayward, 1967, Russia, MEMOIR

"...Eugenia Ginzburg, a historian and loyal Communist Party member, chronicles her own terrifying arrest, interrogation, and eighteen-year imprisonment. She speaks with brutal honesty; her ability to recount the minutes and hours of her internment is surpassed only by her extraordinary will to survive..."

(R.S., p. 297)
