Q&A with Anne Applebaum
Q&A, Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 0am
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anne Applebaum talked about her book, Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956. She used newly opened archives and conducted interviews to examine the effects of communist totalitarianism on East Germany, Poland, and Hungary from the end of World War II to the 1956 uprisings following Stalin’s death. She explained how the Soviets created institutions such as the secret police to undermine civil society and increase party control and used propaganda to shape popular opinion and reinforce communist ideology. She contrasted this with the frustration that communist leaders expressed behind closed doors when their economic and societal reforms did not achieve expected results. She also shared her own experiences in the region. She lives in London and Warsaw. Video clips included Churchill’s “iron curtain” speech, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the “Song of the Party,” and her husband, Radek Sikorski, the current foreign minister of Poland. (Shortride)
