9780002729079: Within the Whirlwind

The first volume of Eugenia Ginzburg's memoirs, Journey into the Whirlwind, has been ranked in the company of Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago. Within the Whirlwind continues the narrative of Mrs. Ginzburg's nightmarish ten-year survival of Soviet prisons and labor camps, following the Stalinist purges of 1937. This portion of her story is especially memorable for its portrayal of her relationship with another prisoner, a German Catholic doctor, who became her second husband -- a love that transcended every obstacle and the most inhuman of circumstances.

Mrs. Ginzburg is revealed here as a woman of outstanding courage and charity, as well as an incomparable chronicler of humanity.
