Eva Zeisel: A Soviet Prison Memoir

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Eva Zeisel, a world renowned designer, died in 2011 at the age of 105. During her long live she worked in many countries, including the Soviet Union. At age 29, caught up in the early Stalinist purges, she was falsely accused of plotting to assassinate Stalin and spent 16 months in prison, mostly in solitary confinement. Recent discoveries show that Stalin took a personal interest in her case. Her memoir is poetic, amusing, charming and chilling. Many of its details are included in her friend Arthur Koestler's novel, "Darkness At Noon." 
In addition to her own words, this iBook includes original documents from her NKVD file, 60 photographs, audio and video clips of Eva, and essays by an historian of Russian art, an FBI agent, and her daughter.
