The Corner

The one and only.

Behind the Curtain


Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Anne Applebaum, author of Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956. We discuss why Winston Churchill came up with the “iron curtain” metaphor, what life was like for ordinary people behind the curtain, and how they tried to resist Soviet domination.
