    Many men than women were sentenced to Stalin's camps Not that women were spared and the author took the opportunity to track down and interview nine of these women Of course most of them were uite elderly now but their time in the Gulags were never forgotten leaving an indelible shadow over their lives We hear in their own words their experiences The cold the twelve to sixteen your work days little food and wearing what we're basically rags Many made friends but since friendships were frowned on they were freuently sent to different camps There were well known poets actresses anyone who came under suspicion for the flimsiest of reasons The most well known person who was exiled to Siberia with her mother was Olga Ivinskaya a companion of Boris Pasternak and was said to be the inspiration for the character of Lara in Dr Zhivago Some of their letters are includedJust as their experiences differed so too did their reactions The author noted though a commanality in all their postures an effect of their horrible times spent in Stalins Gulags This is well done with the author taking on a limited role She just listened and let the women tell their stories in their own way The book also includes photos of then and nowARC from Edelweiss

    Thank you Edelweiss Plus for sharing this book “Even in the midst of ugliness it’s possible to find beauty” I love stories about survival in harsh conditions and this was than that This is the story of nine women recounting their lives in a Russian gulag “Enemies are looking to see you frustrated bitter and angry and in order to defeat them you must keep your head held high” Like many survivors these women relied on stories poetry music humor and friends to make the harsh Siberian conditions bearable Remaining human in such difficult conditions reuired adaptability bravery and above all else attitude I enjoyed reading each woman’s story and learning about this piece of history

    Dressed For A Dance in The Snow is a curated series of personal interviews that gives a voice to those whose names are not included in Russian history books but whose stories are just as valuable to the country’s modern discourse Although I do think that the book suffers from a lack of structure and historical context the value of these nine personal narratives is incontestible

    Well worth reading I’ve read a few other books about the Gulag but none focused on what happened to women Very sobering I may even reread it someday

    I received a copy of this arc from Edelweiss in exchange for a fair and honest review I found this book to be very informative There are so many things that are not taught in our world history classes Or maybe I'm just old and can't remember The things that these young girls and women went through would've broken many of us However many of them credit their time in the gulags as being a positive experience They learned what it is to have true friendship they learned to be strong brave to have hope Some found love The women that were interviewed had a love of books collections of them and had memorized and recited their favorite verses while in the gulags They learned to defend themselves from men who wanted to take advantage of them I can't imagine being forced to work in the cold of Siberia especially without proper clothing being malnourished The damage done to their bodies not being able to stand straight due to the conditions in which they were forced to work Many had family members who were either killed immediately after arresrt or died in the work camps These girls were not given representation not given fair trials and were arrested on the most trivial and trumped up charges It seems to me that it was a terrifying time to live under Stalin's rule I loved reading the different experiences that each woman had endured The lessons that they learned from those experiences I felt that the interview subjects were excellent choices Each one having a uniue yet similar story to tell The reason for 45 stars however was the flow Granted it seemed to have been written the way that it was spoken But to me the flow was off There should have been structure

    This is an amazing book While these stories covered suffering and extreme abuse they also included such strength and resilience I read this book almost in one sitting I got so absorbed that I could not stop reading

    I love this book and the way Monika Zgustova wrote it She tells the stories of women survivors of the Gulag many of whom have spent an average of twenty or years in the camps She includes their own words and letters along with their stories These are important stories to read about people who have experienced some of the worst human abuse and state sanctified torture of the 20th century Because of the fewer numbers of women in the Stalinist camps they have often been neglected although one of the greatest documents of the Gulag was written by a woman Eugenia GinzburgZgustova herself has said in interviews that writing this book was a life changing experience for her Reading the book is a terrifying realization of the effects of totalitarianism on the individual The women also shown in their post gulag lives coped in amazing ways with their traumas and their sufferings were different from the men's The women's reflections on their treatment and incarceration are a testament to the human spirit as is Zgustova's book I appreciate being able to read the book in Spanish and I hope it will be translated so people can read it

    I enjoy books that reveal large holes in my knowledge of history's events This is absolutely one such book Zgustova relays and relays well the women's experiences in the Gulags of Communist Russia She doesn't color them with her opinions; this book is filled with well transcribed first hand lives The women she interviewed for this book weren't arrested and condemned because of just one thing; the reasons of their imprisonments are diverse Would recommend

    How women survived years in the gulags of Siberia I will never understand Disease starvation freezing temperatures They were mostly intelligentsia so they seemed to survive by writingreciting poetry and literature So amazing

    A harrowing collection of women survivors of the Soviet gulag If you don’t read this you are doing yourself and history a disservice
