https://tarbaby.wordpress.com/2017/07/26/aleksandr-solzhenitsyn/ Alexander Solzhenitsyn was a famous inmate of the Soviet Gulag. He is most well-known for The Gulag Archipelago, for which he won the Nobel Prize for Literature His first book, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, was allowed to be published, reflecting the post-Stalin era of a new openness that existed then, back in the 1962. It was an extraordinary event as it was the first work of literature that appeared in the USSR that criticized the communist government. However, what is not so well-known is his book, Russia and the Jews: 200 Years Together, published in the early 2000s, in which he outlines very clearly who he believes were the power behind the Soviet government that threw that part of Eastern Europe and other satellite states into a prolonged period of horror and suffering. “200 Years Together” Ever since he published this book, about Russo-Jewish history, the lionization ended, and today he is hardly mentioned in the mainstream media. Several chapters that focus on the Jewish Question have been censored. These chapters were banned for publication in English by the Simon Wiesenthal Center. These are chapters 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15. The banned chapters have since been translated independently by individuals and are available here (https://twohundredyearstogether.wordpress.com/page/2/) for free. The rest of the book is available here (https://ia800301.us.archive.org/32/items/Solzhenitsyn200YearsTogether/Solzhenitsyn-200 Years Together.pdf), with the censored chapters missing (please do read it all online, for there is too much material, photos, etc. impossible to paste here - it would also be too long, even being so interesting and important as it is... )
