This is the album of the siege of Leningrad (St Petersburg) during the Second World War. The collection of unique photographs comprises not only those long forgotten photos from state archives but also photos taken by German journalists at the front line. Original materials – extracts from the diaries of survivors (most of them lived through the siege but were later arrested and sentenced for anti Soviet actions – i.e.these very diaries), archive documents never published before – make this album a definitive account of the sufferings of citizens in the most horrible years of all the 300 years city history.
