“SLOVO” HOUSE

“SLOVO” HOUSE

In 1930, in the capital city of Kharkiv, with the approval of Stalin, specifically for Ukrainian writers the "Slovo" house was being built. Sixty-four comfortable apartments, a dining room, a solarium and service staff - real paradise for the creators of literature. However, this paradise is fitted with a special surveillance system and a network of agents, through which the authors are kept under control. Some writers were even reported by their own wives-agents.
Also everyone who visits this house, are under control, including Bertolt Brecht, Theodore Dreiser, Bruno Yasensky, Panayit Istrati, who arrive in Kharkiv for the International Conference of Revolutionary Writers of 1930.
Love drama, suicides, asylums, the holodomor – all of this is about the "Slovo" house.
