Anna Politkovskaya
Birth: Aug. 30, 1958
Death: Oct. 7, 2006

Journalist, Author. Born in New York, she was a special correspondent for the Russian journal Novaya Gazeta. Politkovskaya was widely recognized for her book "The Dirty War", a collection of articles mainly about the second Chechen conflict, which began in 1999. Her many awards include the Prize of the Russian Union of Journalists, the Amnesty International UK's Global Award for Human Rights Journalism, the PEN USA Freedom to Write Award, and the Olof Palme Prize for human rights work. In October 2002, she was one of the few people to enter the Moscow theatre where Chechen militants had seized hundreds of hostages. She also wrote "Putin's Russia: Life in a Failing Democracy". Politkovskaya, who often received death threats as a result of her work, was murdered in the elevator of her home in Moscow.  (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
