‘The Memory Keeper of Kyiv’ by Erin Litteken


The Memory Keeper of Kyiv by Erin Litteken

Available now

Brought to life by an author who is a granddaughter of a Ukrainian refugee from World War II, the events of this novel are especially poignant given the ongoing invasion of Ukraine right now. Set in the 1930s, the book opens with Stalin’s army entering a tiny Ukrainian village and pressuring the locals to adopt collective farming—without question or comment. Soon anyone who speaks out disappears, compounding terror as the farming methods go bust, resulting in a man-made famine that costs millions of lives. Any kind of resistance is against the law, but 16-year-old Katya notes everything in her diary, which will resurface decades later.
