Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn - 200 years together
Solzhenitsyn had served as a captain in the Soviet Union's Red Army, and later wrote of the innumerable atrocities committed by that army upon German civilians as they invaded Germany on October 1944 :
"whoever was still a virgin, was soon to become a woman; the women soon to become corpses; their eyes bloody, already glazed over, pleaded to be killed."
He is renowned for making the world more fully aware of the Soviet Union's murderous concentration and labour camps, through his most famous book, The Gulag Archipelago (vols. 1 & 2), described by English historian Edward Crankshaw writing in London's The Observer as "a memorial to the millions who suffered and died". For this Solzhenitsyn received the Nobel prize.
He was exiled from the Soviet Union in 1974, not returning to Russia until after the collapse of communism, in 1994. That year he was also elected as a member of Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts in the Department of Language and Literature. Metapedia
