Extras: Nina Kosterina -
A Young Communist in Stalinist Russia

October 2020 Update: A second edition of this biography will be released this fall! I'm excited to share the refreshed version. I will update this Extras page as well. More soon!


I think Nina's story and the times she lived in would make a fantastic subject for a school history project.
