Requiem by Anna Akhmatova

"Requiem" is a powerful collection of poems that serve as a memorial to the hardships endured by the Russian people under Stalin's rule, particularly focusing on the Great Purge and the Siege of Leningrad. The author, through her deeply personal and emotive verses, gives voice to the suffering and despair of mothers, wives, and daughters who had their loved ones taken away by the regime. The poems are a testament to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of unimaginable adversity, and a poignant tribute to the countless lives lost during this dark chapter in history.
