Inhaltsangabe: For almost twenty years, two men from Georgia dominated the Russians and its empire: Stalin and Beria, as head of what was to become the KGB. This book is a memoir of the daily life of these two men who sent millions to their graves. It vividly paints Stalin?s increasingly psychotic nature, but also the incomprehensible loyalty that Stalin inspired among women including the author?s mother. It contains Sergo?s own fascinating anecdotes, among them, an account of the time he was chased by Svetlana, Stalin?s nymphomaniac daughter. Upon Stalin?s mysterious death, Beria dramatically lost the struggle for power with Khrushchev, a Russian, who murdered him with the aid of his fellow politburo members. More than any book currently available, this extraordinary document shows what it was like to grow up at the top in a duplicitous and increasingly violent atmosphere.
Über den Autor:
Françoise Thom is a Professor at the Sorbonne. A staunch anti-Communist, she became interested in Sergo Beria as one of the last witnesses of Stalin?s excesses. Her notes and introduction provide a running commentary.
The late Sergo Beria grew up as first among the Kremlin?s elite where a deceptively jovial calm papered over total violence. He chose a neutral engineering career and was one of the people who briefed Stalin on the advantages of nuclear technology, a career that he was allowed to continue after his father's death at the hands of Khrushchev.
