Wir befinden uns in einem radikalen Umbruch. Digitalisierung und politische Umwälzungen verändern alles. Nicht nur Deutschland, sondern die ganze Welt steht am Beginn einer neuen Zeit. Wir Freie Demokraten glauben, dass wir für diese neue Zeit auch ein neues Denken brauchen. Ein Denken frei von Vorurteilen, frei von Gewohnheiten, frei von „So haben wir das immer gemacht". Ein Denken, das nach vorne gerichtet ist und das die Lösungen eben nicht in der Vergangenheit sucht. Denn wir befinden uns im Umbruch, das ist sicher. Und genauso sicher sind die Möglichkeiten, die er bietet. Lasst sie uns nutzen.
Even before its dissolution in 1991, the Soviet Union was engaged in an ambivalent struggle to come to terms with its violent and repressive history. Following the death of Stalin in 1953, entrenched officials attempted to distance themselves from the late dictator without questioning the underlying legitimacy of the Soviet system. At the same time, the return of Gulag victims to society opened questions about the nature, reality, and mentality of the system that remain contentious to this day. This book is the first to examine at length and in-depth the post-camp experience of Stalin's victims and their fate in post-Soviet Russia. As such, it is an essential companion to the work of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Written and researched while Russian archives were most available and while there were still survivors to tell their stories, The Gulag survivor is a groundbreaking work in modern Russian history.
