Vasily Grossman’s 1960 novel Life and Fate has been hailed as a 20th century War and Peace. It is, however, only the second half of a dilogy, the first half of which was published in 1952. Robert Chandler will talk about translating the first novel, Stalingrad, and German-Ukrainian historian Tatiana Dettmer will discuss her own very recent discovery: the existence of a real-life model for the hero of the two novels — Lev Shtrum, a nuclear physicist working in Kiev in the 1920s and early 1930s.
