Anna Politkovskaya was an outstanding woman, devoted writer, and Human Rights activist. On October 7th 2006, a group of cowards assassinated her because they were afraid to face the truth. She was murdered because she exposed the crimes of the Russian government. Throughout the years Politkovskaya had been tracked down, followed, and investigated but that did not discourage her. Even after several failed assassination attempts, she kept going because she knew that she possessed a gift that was no match for the Russian government. She had the gift of writing, and wrote about the facts. Anna revealed the secrets that government tried kept hidden, and exposed their evil deeds. Even though her life was at stake she never gave up, she knew that it was her duty to keep the world informed. The world will never forget her. We salute Anna Politkovskaya.

EnhanceTV: Letter To Anna TV & Video

 Letter To Anna spacer TV & Video
On October 7, 2006, Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya was murdered in the lift of her Moscow apartment building. She had been a strident critic of the government of President Putin and it was widely thought that her murder was a political act.

Over a 12 month period, from 2003 to 2004 the director Erick Bergkraut filmed exclusive interviews with Anna for another story. He ended up with several hours of interviews as well as photographs. Anna's story haunted him.

Why had this elegant, articulate, and passionate woman been murdered in cold blood? Politkovskaya was a champion for those who were society's weakest, for those who had no rights. Was it because she had taken a stand against the war in Chechnya?

Anna's life had been in jeopardy before. In September 2004, she flew to Beslen in order to mediate with terrorists who had invaded a school taking students and teachers hostage. But on the flight she was suddenly taken ill after drinking a cup of tea. Anna told her editor at Novaya Gazeta she had been poisoned. Tests carried out on her at the American Hospital in Moscow showed that she had indeed been poisoned - by an unknown substance. Her son, Ilya believes that if Anna had not been poisoned, the situation at Belsen would not have deteriorated into a blood-bath.

After her death, Novaya Gazeta received hundreds of letters from people who wanted to know the truth about Anna's death. "I am convinced we will succeed because the whole world is watching. We should not underestimate that," says Ilya. "We shall exploit this attention to the full if necessary. I want to know who gave the orders."

Among those interviewed in the program are Anna's sister, Elena Kudimova, her daughter, Vera Politkovskaya, her son Ilya Politkovsky, her editor at Novaya Gazeta Dmitry Muratov, the Human Rights activist Andrei Mironov and Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky, among others.
