Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This shockingly powerful and original book is the most detailed account ever written of the 'Second Babi Yar' in Rovno. Clearly narrating the entangled history of the city and the region of Rovno, it presents an excellent example of transnational history." - Hiroaki Kuromrya, Professor of History, Indiana University, USA, and author of Conscience on Trial: The Fate of Fourteen Pacifists in Stalin's Ukraine, 1952-1953 (2012)
