Quâ€™elle Ã©tait belle cette utopie !
Â« (â€¦)Iâ€™ve been waiting for this rendez-vous with the French public for a long time.(â€¦) If I survived more than twenty years of intense hardships, it was partly due to my strong will and determination to return to France to tell the tale of what I had seen and learned in the Gulag.
Preface from the author (1989)
The Gulag Handbook
“You will not find in the official speeches of Soviet leaders the answer to the question of what they in fact think about human rights. You will find this answer in the daily realities of the Gulag, which has become an immutable shadow over Soviet reality.”
