|Katharine Baker will discuss her experience in translating Sliozberg’s powerful memoir, the best account of the daily life of women in Soviet prison camps and one of the best known of all Gulag memoirs. She will read passages from the memoir, and show photographs of Sliozberg and her family. In 1994, while participating in a Moscow-based research project on Soviet victims of Stalin’s political purges, she was given a copy of Sliozberg’s memoir and decided to translate it into English, so a wider readership could learn of Sliozberg’s Gulag experience. At the time, “My Journey,” was one of the first Gulag memoirs to become widely circulated underground. Alexander Solzhenitsyn relied heavily upon it when writing “Gulag Archipelago.”|
