    Exclamation Kolyma - The Artic Death Camps [pdf]

    Kolyma The Artic death camps [Conquest, Robert]

    Exposé of the Soviet Union's Most Brutal Siberian Concentration Camps


    Solzhenitsyn, in The Gulag Archipelago, calls Kolyma the "pole of cold and cruelty" of Stalin's labour-camp system, adding that it is so notorious in the USSR that he himself is only devoting a few pages to it.

    In this important book, first published in hardback in 1978, Robert Conquest makes it clear why Kolyma is a name comparable with Auschwitz. Its three million-odd victims perished not in gas chambers, but predominantly by cold and hunger, and, as Dr. Conquest demonstrates, these killings were the conscious result of a policy of extermination.

    Kolyma is a vast area in the north-east of arctic Siberia and could only be reached by sea, during the ice-free summer months, over which the prison hulks carried their victims in appalling conditions.

    The present work is a documentation from a number of sources, both Soviet and Western. Kolyma constitutes, it is true, only one section of the 'Archipelago' (as Solzhenitsyn has so aptly named it) of the NKVD's penal empire, scattered throughout the vast territories of the Soviet North and East.

    But, just as Auschwitz has come to stand for the Nazi extermination camps as a whole, so Kolyma remains fixed in the imagination of the Soviet peoples as the great archetype of the sinister system under which Stalin ended, by hunger, cold and exhaustion, the lives of so many of his subjects.

    "This excellent historical work gives us a painstaking account of a subject only barely touched on in 'The Gulag Archipelago'... 'Kolyma' may well be the best place to begin an acquaintance with this appalling material." - Hilton Kramer in The New York Times Book Review

    The difference between the holocaust and the gulag system is that the soviet gulag system actually happened.
