Katharine Gratwick Baker Reflections on Reading and Translating My Journey: How One Woman Survived Stalins Gulag by Olga Adamova-Sliozberg. Olga Adamova-Sliozberg (1902-1991) was an economist before her arrest. Upon her second release in 1956, she returned to Moscow, where she lived with her two married children, helped raise her grandchildren, and finished writing her memoir. Widely known and available in underground circulation, My Journey was not officially published in Russia until 2002 and not available in English until Katharine Gratwick Bakers translation, published in 2011. It remains the best account of the daily life of women in the Soviet prison camps. Katharine Gratwick Baker has made a number of translations. In addition to My Journey, she has also translated the Czech play Vratim se do Prahy by Oldrikh Danek. A graduate of Harvard/Radcliffe College, New York University, and Catholic University, Katharine Gratwick Baker lives in Northampton, where she has a clinical practice as a family therapist.
