Summary/Abstract: Reminiscences of a German maturing in the USSR who was brought up by the Soviet system to propagate the communist revolution in his own country. After the war, Wolfgang Leonhard was actively introducing communism in the defeated Germany. Ideological dilemmas make him break off with Stalinism in 1949. The Children of the Revolution, published for the first time in 1955, is an illustration of the perekovka (re-forging) of souls on the living material, and evidence of political blindness.
