Important testimony from last remaining survivors
3 January 2019 | by empresschowSee all my reviews

When factual history is being attacked by fake news, stories like this become even MORE important. Women's voices have been silenced for too long. Humanity is kind-- but also cruel. Testimonies like Women of the Gulag are bookmarks to help us remember-- so that we DO NOT repeat the worst of human behavior. An important story that I did not know the nuances of until watching Women of the Gulag.
