Search - List of Books by Vasily Grossman

Vasily Semyonovich Grossman (, ; December 12, 1905–September 14, 1964) was a Soviet writer and journalist. Grossman trained as an engineer and worked in the Donets Basin, but changed career in the 1930s. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he became a war correspondent for the Red Army newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda, writing firsthand accounts of the battles of Moscow, Stalingrad, Kursk, and Berlin. Grossman's eyewitness accounts of conditions in a Nazi extermination camp, following the liberation of Treblinka, were among the earliest.

After World War II, Grossman's faith in the Soviet state was shaken by Joseph Stalin's embrace of antisemitism. While Grossman was never arrested by Soviet authorities, his two major literary works—Life and Fate and Forever Flowing—were censored as unacceptably anti-Soviet, and Grossman himself became a nonperson. The KGB raided Grossman's apartment after he had completed Life and Fate, seizing the manuscripts, notes, and even the ribbon from the typewriter on which the text had been written. The book remained censored by Nikita Krushchev after Stalin's death; Grossman was told by Mikhail Suslov that it could not be published for at least two hundred years. At the time of Grossman's death from stomach cancer in 1964, his books were unreleased. They were eventually smuggled out of the Soviet Union by a network of dissidents, including Andrei Sakharov and Vladimir Voinovich, and first published in the USSR in 1988.
