Italian text

The essay is dedicated to the secret murders perpetrated on Stalin’s order, focusing in particular on the secret Laboratory “X”, located in central Moscow, where lethal poisons were tested on detainees. The book also cointains some short essays – many of which were published in «Novaja Gazeta» – regarding the life and work of the main perpetrators of justice at the time of the Soviet repressions, including Blochin, Vlodzimirskij, Rodos, Švarcman / Schwarzmann, the Kobulov brothers, Merkulov and others.
