Description - Beria - My Father by Sergo Beria

For almost twenty years, two men from Georgia dominated the Russians and its empire: Stalin and Beria as head of what was to become the KGB. This book is a memoir of the daily life of these two men who sent millions to their graves. It paints Stalin's increasingly psychotic nature, but also the incomprehensible loyalty that Stalin inspired among women including the author's own mother, also a Georgian. Upon Stalin's mysterious death, Beria dramatically lost the struggle for power with Khruschev, a Russian, who murdered him with the aid of his fellow politburo members. Sergo Beria grew up among the Kremlin's elite and has first hand knowledge of the key players in one of history's most totalitarian and criminal regimes, one of them his own father.

Author Biography - Sergo Beria

Sergo Beria grew up among the Kremlin's elite and has first hand knowledge of the key players in of history's most totalitarian and criminal regimes, one of them his own father. He chose a neutral engineering career and was one of the people who briefed Stalin on the advantages of nuclear technology, a career that he was allowed to continue after the murder of his father. Francoise Thom is a Professor at the Sorbonne. Though her thinking is staunchly anti-communist, she got interested in Sergo Beria as one of the last living witnesses of its excesses. Her notes and introduction provide a running commentary on Sergo's assertions.
