Title: Interesting book on Swetlana Allilujewa, Stalins daughter
Post by: britt.25 on May 09, 2008, 09:09:24 AM
Hi members,

I don't know, if anybody know or has read the book, but there is an interesting biography by Martha Schad on Stalins only daughter Swetlana. I don't know, if this is also available in other languages, but it seems to be a fascinating piece of literature, as I have never seen any other german book on her. I have bought it, but haven't read it yet, but can give more infos, after reading it. It seems that Swetlana suffered all her life of being a dictators daughter, she was married different times, also to Wesley W. Peters from the US, whome she had a daughter, Olga, who is  called Chrese Evans today. Swetlana, who calls herself Lana Peters, has two other children from another husband before, too. She also went to India and different countries etc. and had a quite turbulent, but exciting life.
I inform about more things, when I have read the book. There are interesting pictures, too.

Has anyone read the book or knows it? How did you like it?

I hope that this is also published in English.  I actually had her autobiography which is supposed to be a classic.  I found it a bit dull, however.

There is quite a lot about her on the Internet if you look her up.
