Overview

One Hundred Twenty Five by Ernest Kaukhcheshvili

Being swamp by the Second World War at the age of 23 years Ernest Kaukhcheshvili, at that time a fifth-year student at the Leningrad Technological Institute of Refrigeration Industry, shares his memoirs of the tragic events of the siege of Leningrad (Soviet Union).
The first day of the War was associated with the canned crabs for Ernest as all shops were piled with them. But no one could have imagined that soon bread coupons would be more precious than the gold, that students would be making a soup out of the leather belt and that they would remember the number One Hundred Twenty Five forever…That was the daily bread ratio in grams per person Leningrad, the lowest ration ever.
Together with the recollections Ernest meditates about the fate; the politics of that time; the fine lines between life and death, as well as weaknesses and strengths of the human beings during such severe events as wars.
