Our American Gulag

05-15-2021Fr. John Bonavitacola

Dear Friends,

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s, The Gulag Archipelago, first published in English in 1973 is now available in an abridged version that I highly recommend. In it, Solzhenitsyn describes how the omnipresent Soviet apparatus of repression infected every aspect of Russian life including the labor camps, prisons, uprooting and extermination of entire groups of people, the secret police and how the state ruled all-powerfully, degraded and brutalized just about everyone. But it also is the story of tremendous moral courage and how many individuals and small groups refused to be corrupted, violate their conscience and chose to stand against the state’s soul crushing tactics. So much of the resistance was not grand scale coup attempts but small, quieter acts of defiance or refusal to cooperate that allowed individuals to keep their moral compass intact.
