Book Review: I Saw It
I Saw It: Ilya Selvinsky and the Legacy of Bearing Witness to the Shoah by Maxim D. Shrayer was reviewed in Cadernos de Língua e Literatura Hebraica by Bruno Gomide (University of Sao Paolo). Gomide writes:
"Maxim D. Shrayer is responsible for some of the best work in the area of Russian Jewish studies. . . . This book is . . . a pioneering and though-provoking text. . . . Shrayer performs a meticulous reconstruction, with breadth and passion, blending scholarship with a personal attachment to the theme. . . . Using diaries, newspapers, unpublished archival material, field research and immanent reading of literary texts, Shrayer creates a full picture of Soviet cultural life."
