Red Youth:  Young Heroes
of the Great Patriotic War

Red Youth: Young Heroes of the Great Patriotic War documents the extraordinary achievements of the young men and women of the Soviet Union’s anti-fascist resistance during the Second World War.  The first volume of this series features newly annotated editions of Soviet-era documents chronicling the life of legendary partisan fighter Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, the first woman to receive the distinction of “Hero of the Soviet Union” during the Second World War.

Contents include annotated editions of the following documents:
  • Foreword by Mike Bessler  (view full text)
  • The full text of Lyubov Kosmodemyanskaya’s 1942 short work My Daughter Zoya
  • "How it Happened," a selection from Lyubov Kosmodemyanskaya’s 1953 work The Story of Zoya and Shura
  • "Guerilla War," a selection from the book Soviet Calendar 1947: Thirty Years of the Soviet State
  • "The Tasks of the Youth Leagues" by V.I. Lenin (October 2, 1920)
  • "Victory Will Be Ours!" by J.V. Stalin  (July 3, 1941)
  • "Stalin's Victory Address to the Soviet People" (May 9, 1945)
In February 2010, a copy of this book was accepted into the collection of materials at the Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya Museum in Moscow. Read more about this on our blog.
