Life and fate : a novel by Vasiliĭ Grossman( Book )

135 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On its completion in 1960, Life and fate was suppressed by the KGB. Twenty years later, the novel was smuggled out of the Soviet Union on microfilm. At the centre of this epic novel looms the battle of Stalingrad. Within a world torn apart by ideological tyranny and war, Grossman's characters must work out their destinies. Chief among these are the members of the Shaposhnikov family-- Lyudmila, a mother destroyed by grief for her dead son; Viktor, her scientist-husband who falls victim to anti-semitism; and Yevgenia, forced to choose between her love for the courageous tank-commander Novikov and her duty to her former husband. Life and fate is one of the great Russian novels of the 20th century, and the richest and most vivid account there is of what the Second World War meant to the Soviet Union
Forever flowing by Vassili Semenovich Grossman( Book )

77 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everything Flows is the last novel by Vasily Grossman, written after the Soviet authorities suppressed his extraordinary epic of besieged Stalingrad, and the besieged modern soul, Life and Fate. The central story is simple yet moving: Ivan Grigoryevich, the hero, is released after thirty years in the Soviet camps and has to struggle to find a place for himself in an unfamiliar world. This story, however, provides only the bare bones of a work written with prophetic urgency and in the shadow of death. Interspersing Ivan's story with a variety of other stories and essays and even a miniature play, Grossman writes boldly and uncompromisingly about Russian history and the 'Russian soul, ' about Lenin and Stalin, about Moscow prisons in 1937, and about the fate of women in the Gulag, and in the play he subtly dramatizes the pressures that force people to compromise with an evil regime. His chapter about the least-known act of genocide of the last century-the Terror Famine that led to the deaths of around five million Ukrainian peasants in 1932 - 33-is unbearably lucid, comparable in its power only to the last cantos of Dante's Inferno
The black book : the ruthless murder of Jews by German-Fascist invaders throughout the temporarily-occupied regions of the Soviet Union and in the death camps of Poland during the war of 1941-1945 by Ilʹja Grigorʹevič Ėrenburg( Book )

7 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and Russian and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complete black book of Russian Jewry by Vasily Grossman( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Complete Black Book of Russian Jewry is a collection of eyewitness testimonies, letters, diaries, affidavits, and other documents on the activities of the Nazis against Jews in the camps, ghettoes, and towns of Eastern Europe. Arguably, the only apt comparison is to The Gulag Archipelago of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. This definitive edition of The Black Book, including for the first time materials omitted from previous editions, is a major addition to the literature on the Holocaust. It will be of particular interest to students, teachers, and scholars of the Holocaust and those interested in the history of Europe."--Jacket

Life and fate by Vasily Grossman( Book )

32 editions published between 1980 and 2018 in English and Russian and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A book judged so dangerous in the Soviet Union that not only the manuscript but the ribbons on which it had been typed were confiscated by the state, Life and Fate is an epic tale of World War II and a profound reckoning with the dark forces that dominated the twentieth century. Interweaving a transfixing account of the battle of Stalingrad with the story of a single middle-class family, the Shaposhnikovs, scattered by fortune from Germany to Siberia, Vasily Grossman fashions an immense, intricately detailed tapestry depicting a time of almost unimaginable horror and even stranger hope. Life and Fate juxtaposes bedrooms and snipers’ nests, scientific laboratories and the Gulag, taking us deep into the hearts and minds of characters ranging from a boy on his way to the gas chambers to Hitler and Stalin themselves. This novel of unsparing realism and visionary moral intensity is one of the supreme achievements of modern Russian literature

Besatzung, Kollaboration, Holocaust : neue Studien zur Verfolgung und Ermordung der europäischen Juden( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bei der nationalsozialistischen Mordpolitik gegen die Juden kam es in allen Teilen des besetzten Europas zur unheilvollen Verknüpfung von Kollaboration und Völkermord. Auch ohne fremde Hilfe hätte die Shoah singuläre Dimensionen angenommen, doch erhöhten die Zuarbeit und Mithilfe einheimischer Bürokraten, Polizisten und antisemitischer Aktivisten die Effizienz der deutschen Täter. Nicht immer ging die Initiative vor Ort allein von den Deutschen aus. Die Kenntnis über diesen gewichtigen Aspekt der Holocaustgeschichte ist noch fragmentarisch, wird in jüngster Zeit aber durch neue Forschungen erheblich erweitert. Dieser Band führt exemplarische Länderstudien zusammen und richtet den Blick gleichermaßen auf den Westen wie den Osten Europas. Wassili Grossmans Reportage "Ukraine ohne Juden" aus dem Jahr 1943 ergänzt die Untersuchungen um ein eindrucksvolles Zeitzeugnis
