      There is a[n] article or review of "Berditchew Artificers" taken from an edition of "Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums. This is the first and to date only such monumental biography of Grossman. That theme, which this courageous and complicated man was the first to enunciate, had to do with the inhuman or all-too-human? After the Revolution, the Bund was not allowed to exist in Russia, but it continued as a social-democratic party in Poland and Lithuania. Also in This Issue. That sends one back to the realities, to the results of a lunatic criminality that still persists in different forms in our own day, back to the heart-rending eyewitness accounts, but even more to the large-scale works that examine, and as far as possible explain, how such horror could be enacted in Europe in the twentieth century.

      Grossman's story begins in his hometown of Berdichev, in the Ukraine west of Kiev and south of Zhitomir, where some 30, Jews, restricted by the rules of the Pale of Settlement, lived in uneasy alliance with the local population. Perhaps you will survive the war to tell the truth. He collected some of the first eyewitness accounts — as early as — of what later became known as the Holocaust. Grossman also criticized collectivization and political repression of peasants that led to the Holodomor tragedy. Despite his epic pretensions, Grossman had Babel-like moments; take his scene, in "Life and Fate," in which a young boy who will soon die in a gas chamber watches in rapt horror as a beheaded chicken runs around and falls to the earth, "scratching with its young, powerful claws," or his description, again in "Life and Fate," of how a Russian officer in Stalingard looks at the "thin little neck" of his female radio operator and, even as he experiences lust for her, sees in the carnage-filled snapshots of his mind's eye "a broken neck with pearly vertebrae poking through lacerated skin.

      I wanted to read the questions she had posted over the years just in case I could help her in return for her admirable efforts to put online the records of my father's birthtown. The second part of Grossman's story had to do with his assignment as a war correspondent for the newspaper Red Star, for which he was much decorated. In the paranoia of the Cold War years, the Stalinist regime accused him of anti-Soviet activities and, after a secret military trial he was executed on 12 Augusthis 68th birthday. Occasionally the digitization process introduces transcription errors or other problems; we are continuing to work to improve these archived versions. The Russian novelist Vasily Grossman had an important story to tell, and its message was no less powerful for its seeming triteness: too often the road to hell is paved with good intentions. April 14, Here are [two] of the messages I've sent about Berdichev to this Berdichev Group and to Jewishgen's mail group on the Ukraine.

That would perforce lead to an uncomfortable discussion of failed Soviet leadership and the vast German encirclement victories which captured over four million Red Army soldiers within months of the invasion.

The Soviet Union is gone; the historical truth of what happened, to whom, and who aided and abetted must be told.

Because I can't yet read Yiddish unless it is transliterated and I cannot read Hebrew almost at all, I haven't tried to read or even locate the whereabouts of the following but I presume that YIVO in New York has copies of all or some: N.

I am also curious about the contents of the metrical book for Radomysl, because some information I have learned about the origins of one set of my maternal great grandparents suggests that the male BELKOWSKYs may have started life in Radomysl.

I don't know whether anyone did post them to the group. By he had published two collections of stories and the novel Glyukauf, and in was accepted into the privileged Union of Writers.

The late novel Everything Flows, in turn, is especially noted for its quiet, unforced, and yet horrifying condemnation of the Soviet totalitarian state: a work in which Grossman, liberated from worries about censors, spoke honestly about Soviet history. Grossman's account of Soviet complicity in the extermination of Russia's Jews was hidden by the Communist Party for almost 50 years.

The book argues that Bergelson continually reinvented himself as a writer, experimenting with style and narrative technique even under the most severe restrictions of Party dogma. Better to do away with God entirely than to solve the Solomonic paradox of ethnic and religious identity.
