Abstract

My research is being done in association with the book It Was a Long Time Ago, and It Never Happened Anyway: Russia and the Communist Past written by David Satter. Through the use of this book and my outside research, I will seek out the information that Russia has not released on their Soviet past, specifically in the times of Stalin's Purges, the Gulags, and the Siege of Leningrad where too many deaths took place to record. These unrecorded deaths can be found in mass gravesites scattered around present-day Russian Federation. Through mapping these locations, I will be telling the story of the people who never came home.
