Show Summary Details


This chapter sets the scene in which Stalin's last generation grew up. It looks at the devastating and long-lasting impact of war, both on the children who lived through it and on the environment and social structures which socialized them. The post-war ‘brokenness’ of both system and people was an important precondition for many of the new social phenomena described in later chapters.

Keywords: Stalin; children; war; brokenness; post-war years; poverty

Chapter.  13514 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Modern History (1700 to 1945)
