Reviews


In this brilliant, poignant book, David Shneer narrates the biographies of this photograph and the person who captured it. In doing so, Shneer also provides a brief history of photography within the Stalinist and post-Stalinist USSR, the importance of Kerch within the history of the Great Patriotic War, and the meanings of the Holocaust in Russia. -- Stephen M. Norris, The Russian Review
