Short biography
Evgenia Ginzburg was educated at Kazan State University. She married three times, first to Dmitriy Fedorov, a doctor; second to Pavel Aksyonov, the mayor of Kazan; and third to Anton Walter, a German-Russian doctor. She was appointed professor of history at Kazan State University in 1934 and was a Communist Party activist. Ginzburg was caught up in the Stalinist purges and was sent to labor camps in Siberia, where she spent 18 years (1937–1955) before being released and allowed to return to Moscow. She's best known for her two-volume autobiography and memoir of the camps, Journey Into the Whirlwind (1967) and Within the Whirlwind (1981).
