Abstract

In this documentary, historian Anna Reid discusses the first few months of the Siege of Leningrad during World War II. Interviews, photographs, and new documentary evidence based on the files of the NKVD (Soviet secret police) present a horrifying picture of despair, starvation, and cannibalism but also the strength and survival of the people of Leningrad.
