On Friday, February 5, at Cărturești Verona Tea-house, Corint Publishing House and the Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile (IICCMER) launched the volume Into the Whirlwind. Diary by Evghenia Ghinzburg.

Published with the support of the IICCMER, the book is considered to be one of the most important testimonies about the Stalin’s regime of terror. With an impressive attention to detail, a strong power and an invincible spirit, Ghinzburg describes the years, days and minutes spent in prisons and labor camps, including the two years spent in solitary confinement.
