Description:

Recently unearthed in the archives of Stalins secret police, the NKVD, Nina Lugovskayas diary offers rare insight into the life of a teenage girl in Stalins Russia-when fear of arrest was a fact of daily life. Like Anne Frank, thirteen-year-old Nina is conscious of the extraordinary dangers around her and her family, yet she is preoccupied by ordinary teenage concerns: boys, parties, her appearance, who she wants to be when she grows up. As Nina records her most personal emotions and observations, her reflections shape a diary that is as much a portrait of her intense inner world as it is the Soviet outer one. Preserved here, these markings-the evidence used to convict Nina as a "counterrevolutionary"-offer todays reader a fascinating perspective on the era in which she lived.
