The Rise and Fall of the Arab Empire and the Founding of Western Pre-eminence
Two children are found dead in the forest outside the remote village of Gerasimovka, Western Siberia in 1932. Both have been repeatedly stabbed. Who committed these horrific murders has never been proved, but the elder boy, 13-year-old Pavlik Morozov, quickly became the most famous boy in Soviet history, with children across the country exhorted to emulate him. Catriona Kelly, Professor of Russian at the University of Oxford, explores how Stalin's regime turned Pavlik into a boy martyr and national hero designed to produce good Soviet citizens.
