TatianaIt is with sadness we report that Biographers Club Member Tatiana Roshupkina passed away peacefully on the night of 11th January.

Tatiana was diagnosed with terminal cancer about three years ago.  Everything possible was done for her by nurses and doctors at Guys Hospital and the Royal Marsden.

She was cared for by Macmillan nurses and carers in her last days. Anyone wishing to make a donation should send it to one of these.

Tatiana wrote the chapter on the Siege of Leningrad during WW2 in Women in War: From Home Front to Front Line (Pen & Sword Military).

Her mother, also named Tatiana, was a little girl during that time and nearly starved. Tatiana’s mother, brother and nephew all survive her.

Tatiana also translated The Churchills: A Family Portrait by Celia and John Lee, for publication in Russia. She lived to see it published by AST Moscow and received a copy before she passed away.
