This is an auction for THE FORSAKEN: FROM THE GREAT DEPRESSION TO THE GULAGS - HOPE AND BETRAYAL IN STALIN'S RUSSIA, by Tim Tzouliadis.

"The horror that was Stalinist Russia is still incomprehensible to many Americans . . . Reading this book is certain to open their eyes."
- New York Sun

" Gripping and important . . . an extremely impressive book."
- Daily Telegraph

" Tzouliadis's clear, strong narrative discloses the terrible fates which awaited those who wandered into the Soviet sphere. A grim, brilliantly told story."
- Financial Times

Amazon.com review:

"A remarkable piece of forgotten history- the never-before-told story of Americans lured to Soviet Russia by the promise of jobs and better lives, only to meet tragic ends. In 1934, a photograph was taken of a baseball team. These two rows of young men look like any group of American ballplayers, except perhaps for the Russian lettering on their jerseys. The players have left their homeland and the Great Depression in search of a better life in Stalinist Russia, but instead they will meet tragic and, until now, forgotten fates. Within four years, most of them will be arrested alongside untold numbers of other Americans. Some will be executed. Others will be sent to "corrective labor" camps where they will be worked to death. This book is the story of lives-the forsaken who died and those who survived. Based on ground-breaking research, The Forsaken is the story of Americans whose dreams were shattered and lives lost in Stalinist Russia."
