This I Cannot Forget: The Memoirs of Nikolai Bukharin's Widowby Anna Larina, Stephen F. Cohen (Introduction)
'The Memoirs of Nikolai Bukharin's Widow'. A sensation when published in Moscow and a bestseller in Europe, the memoirs of Anna Larina-the widow of the legendary Bolshevik leader Nikolai Bukharin condemned by Stalin at the infamous Moscow Trial of 1938-open a new window into the drama and secrets of Soviet history. This remarkable woman tells the story of not only of her twenty years in Gulag prison camps and exile, and that of her infant son from whom she separated for so long, but also of her special life as a daughter and wife among the founding fathers of the Soviet Union.
