About this Event:

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anne Applebaum explains how Communism was imposed across the societies in Eastern Europe following World War II. Applebaum uses a wide range of material, including new archives and interviews with those who lived through the time, to show how the Communists bullied, threatened and murdered their way to power. Personal stories of those who faced difficult decisions on whether to flee, fight or collaborate are woven into the narrative.

Applebaum won the Pulitzer Prize for her second book, Gulag, which described the lives of those incarcerated in labour camps. She is Phillipe Roman Professor at the London School of Economics and director of political studies at the Legatum Institute, and has worked as a writer and editor for The Economist and as deputy editor of Spectator.
