I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the era country politics WWII or even just the Gulag itself The vastness of the Gulag is astounding From small camps to giant and from city prisons to tents in Siberia and all sizes in between The variety of work that was reuired was also uite extensive from manufacturing to logging to mining to channel building With the uality of life that prisoners had to endure and how unprepared both they and their captures were I am surprised that so many people survived to tell their talesI had no issues with the history it was extremely well researched but the layout of the book held a few issues for me Part 1 was a great introduction but I found Part 2 was a bit confusing as it switched from years and camps with such rapidity I couldn t always remember what had happened in that year or that camp as it switched from subject to subject But I loved the epilogue and the summation was very thought provoking The story was depressing and shocking and disturbing At the same time it was fascinating enthralling and makes me want to know even about the legacy of Lenin Stalin and the Communist Party

Page 102 my book from Stalin and Beria an enemy of the people is not only one who commits sabotage but one who doubts the rightness of the Party line women were arrested as wives of enemies of the people and the same applied to childrenPage 241 Vladimir Bukovsky In our camps you were expected not only to be a slave laborer but to sing and smile while you worked as well They didn t just want to oppress us they wanted us to thank them for it This is a book that is horrific in scope as it details the history of the Gulag in the Soviet Union from its beginnings under LeninThe author who writes with great elouence takes us through the various stages of what occurred The Gulag itself was a vast slave labour system that had two basic purposes to incarcerate anyone who was perceived as a threat to the system and to use the slave labourers the prisoners to industrialize and modernize the Soviet Union to build roads and railroads work in mines chop down trees for lumber in other words to exploit the almost endless resources of the countryMs Applebaum takes us through the entire seuence of events the arrest interrogation imprisonment transport to a camp and the camp itself Millions passed through this system some than onceWhen examined individually these steps could be compared to imprisonment in other countries for instance the food is atrocious But it is the vast scale of the Gulag that sets it apart not only in terms of human dignity but as a crime against there own citizens One aspect that is beyond the compare is the transport to the labour camps Many would die during this long journey to the outer reaches of the Soviet Union where they could be locked in cattle cars or the bottom of ships and given little food and clothing Many of the prisons were in the far north where the prisoners were forced to work long hours in the cold with inadeuate clothing and small rations even in the summer they were decimated by hordes of mosuitoes Of interest is that the camps were controlled by the Russian mob which has a long history as they started in the days of the Czar These real criminals held brutal sway over the political prisoners The number and types of prisoners were vast political prisoners exiles as in a national group relocated for ethnic cleansing consisting over the years of Poles Lithuanians Chechens religious people kulaks One is never uite sure of the distinction between an exile and prisoners in remote locations neither due to geography had freedom of movement Maybe prisoners had an advantage because they were fed usually with a bowl of watery soupPage 421 in 1939 With no warning the NKVD had plucked these newcomers Poles Ukrainians Belorussians and Moldavians out of their bourgeois or peasant worlds after the Soviet invasion of multiethnic eastern Poland Bessarabia and the Baltic States and dumped them in large numbers into the Gulag and exile villagesWhat is most sad and atrocious is the treatment of the children which I dare say was even worse than the way women were treated They were at the bottom of the ladder in a society where work was rewarded with food Page 333 Decades of propaganda of posters draped across orphanage walls thanking Stalin for our happy childhood failed to convince the Soviet people that the children of the camps the children of the streets and the children of the orphanages had ever become anything but full fledged members of the Soviet Union s large and all embracing criminal classMs Appleton humanizes all with emotional uotes from several people including Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Varlam Shalamov The author discusses how the Gulag changed after Stalin For instance during the Brezhnev era Joseph Brodsky a poet was arrested and imprisoned on charges of parasitism This book furthered my understanding of the Soviet Union and its successor Russia This is not a book of numbers It is intense and extremely well written We are provided not just with a history of the Gulag but of the entire country Highly recommended for any who are interested in this important historical era As the author mentions it gives us another view of the Cold War and why there was a Cold WarPage 515 Olga Adamo Sliozberg arrested in 1936 released in 1956 There was no one home and finally I was able to weep freelyTo weep for my husband who perished in the cellars of the Lubyanka when he was thirty seven years old at the height of his powers and talent for my children who grew up orphans stigmatized as the children of enemies of the people for my parents who died of grief for Nikolai who was tortured in the camps and for all of my friends who never lived to be rehabilitated but lie beneath the frozen earth of Kolyma
