Preserving the childhood memories of some of the last generation of White Russian women to experience the Revolution first-hand, this poignant collection of interviews and photographs provides a unique and moving record to life in Imperial and Bolshevik Russia.
The accounts give a personal insight into how the Revolution devastated the lives of the aristocracy, the intelligentsia and the foreigners of Mosocw and St Petersburg in the few weeks after the October 1917 upheaval. These people, previously amongst the wealthiest in Russia, were reduced to a life of poverty, persecution and exile. This forced excile has had a profound effect on these women. Their childhood memories have remained very sharp, with a volume of detail and intensity of recall peculiar to those whose premature transition from child to adult coincided with the traumas of revolution.
