9780761834212: Surviving the Blockade of Leningrad

In 1941 German and Finnish military forces established a blockade around Leningrad. Their siege of the city would last almost nine hundred days during which Leningrad was struck by incessant aerial bombing and artillery shelling. The winter of 1941-1942 was especially severe. A shortage of fuel forced the Leningraders to huddle around small wood burning stoves and sleep in overcoats. The freezing temperatures caused the pipes of the city's water system to burst. In November, due to the shortage of food, the daily ration of bread was 250 grams for workers and 125 grams for dependents. The siege came to an end in early 1944, but by that time more than a million Leningraders had died. Svetlana Magayeva, just ten years old when the siege began, witnessed the air raids and artillery shelling and endured the cold and hunger. These experiences were so painful that she suppressed them in her subconscious until many years later when an accident re-injured a wound suffered during the siege brought back her memories. Surviving the Blockade of Leningrad is the account of these memories.
