At the end of this book, it talks about how these women were some of Solzhenitsyn's 200 silent witnesses, but they didn't really like his interpretation. I have to admit The Gulag Archipelago doesn't really have the feeling that this collection does, probably because these are women telling their own story. It's quite amazing, and similar to the many, many stories of Communism in other countries. It's always the same horror, different leader, although Russia is a particularly interesting example [...]

This is an excellent collection of several women's experiences in the Soviet gulag system. Some are better than others, of course. Some are a bit vague while others are incredibly detailed. These ladies suffered severe hardships, for no good reason, at the hands of the Soviet state, and took incredible risk writing down their experiences, even decades after their imprisonment.Their stories - and the gulag system in general - deserve more attention.

A great compilation of factual accounts that represent the utter degradation and suffering inflicted upon sixteen women who were forced into the slave labor camps of the "Gulag" (Glavnoe Upravlenie ispravitel’no-trudovykh LAGerei), at the hands of the monstrous Stalinist regime.

Excellent accounts of women who spent time in the Gulag under Stalin's regime. It's all stuff you can read in text books but the personal accounts make it that much more real and that much more important to remember. Really recommend it to anyone interested in this past century of Russian history's so much better than just reading facts and the ramblings of historians who are speculating about something they didn't experience.

This is a collection of women's experiences of life in the Russian Gulags. I must admit I only read parts of it, as it is very long and does get rather overwhelming - the long opening section, by a woman who is a fine writer, was especially moving.
