LAST TO KNOW, stories of a warThis book is based on the materials gathered from interviews, the personal
recollections of people who lived through the Chechen war. Various stories are
presented in the book: stories of the young and old, of Russians and of Chechens,
of the military, of journalists, and of human rights defenders. Each interviewee
tells their own version of and attitude towards what happened, relating his or
her own truth, enabling the reader to consider the same events from different
points of view. The publication is meant for a wide audience of readers interested
in these matters. However it is also primarily aimed at young people, those who
are starting to show an interest in the Caucasus, in the problem of the war, in the
issues of memory and peace-building.
