Epigraph
Information from the Dutch Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to your language.
Met een beklemd gemoed heb ik mij er jarenlang van weerhouden dit al gereed liggende boek in druk te geven: mijn plicht tegenover hen die nog leefden, woog zwaarder dan mijn plicht tegenover de gestorvenen. Maar nu de staatsveiligheidsdienst het boek toch al in handen heeft, blijft mij niets anders over dan het onverwijld te publiceren. (A. Solzjenitsyn, september 1973)
Dedication
I dedicate this
to all those who did not live
to tell it.
And may they please forgive me
for not having seen it all
nor remembered it all,
for not having divined all of it.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060007761, Paperback)

Drawing on his own incarceration and exile, as well as on evidence from more than 200 fellow prisoners and Soviet archives, Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn reveals the entire apparatus of Soviet repression -- the state within the state that ruled all-powerfully.

Through truly Shakespearean portraits of its victims -- men, women, and children -- we encounter secret police operations, labor camps and prisons; the uprooting or extermination of whole populations, the "welcome" that awaited Russian soldiers who had been German prisoners of war. Yet we also witness the astounding moral courage of the incorruptible, who, defenseless, endured great brutality and degradation. The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956 -- a grisly indictment of a regime, fashioned here into a veritable literary miracle -- has now been updated with a new introduction that includes the fall of the Soviet Union and Solzhenitsyn's move back to Russia.
