Picking up on the lives of Frieda Ped’ko, Grigorii Erenburg, and Alevtina Kuprikhina, who are introduced in chapter 1, the chapter sharpens the account of survival and destruction in Eastern Belorussia, and the implications of remembering both. Eastern Belorussian territories remained under military administration throughout the war; and they were the site of indiscriminate executions of civilians beginning in summer 1941. A number of children and young people were deprived of their closest relatives and tried to make sense of this loss, efforts that continue to fail in light of unbearable terror and violence. The resulting fragmentary narratives demonstrate the aftereffects of systematic violence and pose thorny questions for historical scholarship.
