Anne Applebaum at the New York Historical Society

At the end of World War II, the Soviet Union found itself in control of a huge swath of territory in Eastern Europe. Stalin and his secret police set out to convert a dozen radically different countries to Communism, a completely new political and moral system. Anne Applebaum and Jacob Weisberg discuss the lost civilization of the Soviet bloc, its cruelty, paranoia, and broken-down morality.

Anne Applebaum will speak in the The Robert H. Smith Auditorium at the New-York Historical Society. For information about tickets, please visit
