A Time Of Despair
Documentary by Jean Crépu & Nicolas Miletitch
A documentary dedicated to the works and life of literary great, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
The Most Important Book Of The Twentieth Century
“In the book, Together for Two Hundred Years about the Jewish experience in Russia. It included mention of the Jewish role in the Bolshevik terror. Although he was quite soft-spoken in his book, in many ways he does lay wide-open the still suppressed story of the prominent Jewish role in the Bolshevik revolution and especially the Jewish role in the genocide of Christians, intelligentsia, and other potential enemies of the Soviet. Solzhenitsyn says very emphatically that even with all their complaints of social suppression by the Soviet apparatus in the 50s and 60s, they hide their prominent role in the horrors and genocides of the earlier decades.”
Before the release of the aforementioned title, came his classic, three-volume, non-fiction work The Gulag Archipelago, written between 1958 and 1968. It was first published in 1973, followed by an English translation the following year. It covers the horrid conditions of the Soviet Union's Gulags and details his own experience within this prison system as well.
This is the account of how Solzenhitzyn and a team of helpers exercised great caution to avoid being detected by the communist regime in order to smuggle his work into the West.
