Forgotten Lives explores the lives and work of Lenin's sisters--Anna, Ol'ga and Mariia--and the role they played in the Russian Revolution. It traces their early revolutionary careers and contributions to the underground movement, their work for the Party and the State after October 1917, and their relationship with Lenin and Stalin. The portrayal of the sisters in Soviet and English-language histories is also discussed, with a view to restoring these largely forgotten lives to the history of the revolution.
