Opis produktu

Anne Applebaum wields her considerable knowledge of this dark chapter in history and presents a collection of the writings of survivors of the Gulag the Soviet concentration camps. Although the opening of the Soviet archives to scholars has made it possible to write the history of this notorious concentration camp system documents tell only one side of the story. Gulag: An Anthology now fills in the other half. The backgrounds of the writers reflect the extraordinary diversity of the Gulag itself. Here are the personal stories of figures such as renowned literary scholar Dmitri Likhachev: Anatoly Marchenko the son of illiterate labourers: and American citizen Alexander Dolgun. These remembrances many of them appearing in English for the first time each chosen for both literary and historical value collectively spotlight the strange moral universe of the camps as well as the relationships that prisoners had with one another with their guards and with professional criminals who lived beside them. A vital addition to the literature of this era annotated for a generation that no longer remembers the Soviet Union Gulag: An Anthology will inform interest and inspire offering a source for reflection on human nature itself.The power of Gulag Voices is not only to remind us of the horrors of the Soviet Unions corrective labour institutions and to honour those who were incarcerated there. It is also to illuminate the human consequences that ensure when any states legal system fails to recognise the human rights of prisoners.. Wendy Slater Times Literary SupplementApplebaum... is the ideal editor providing introductions to each account as well as a general explanation of the Gulag system. Her selection each depicting a different aspect of Gulag life leaves an unforgettable impression Anthony Beevor Mail on SundayGulag Voices will inform a generation fortunate enough to be living in different times Mary Dejevsky The Independent... Applebaum has performed an invaluable service Victor Sebestyen The Spectator
