Herbert and Elsbeth Weichmann published this book after having travelled twice, for several weeks, to cities and towns within the stalinist Soviet Union in the fall of 1930 and spring of 1931. The book was published in Berlin 1931. The vivid description of everyday life in “the first workers’ and peasants’ state in the world”, the depiction of the Soviet economy’s incompetence, and of inhumane policies by the Stalinist government make this book still worth reading today and grant a small glimpse of the everyday struggle of workers and peasants for survival. The authors summarize:

“We came back with the impression that we should have more of a patient and loving stance toward our own circumstances - keeping in mind, how much more free and dignified our existence is than our imagination sometimes wants to admit. The ideological justification of the Russian system means, in essence, nothing more than this very old and reactionary creed: the ends justify the means. It is a verdict of barbarism and torture, a license to abandon all restraint that manages to cloak itself in an idea.”
