This comment is not intended to take anything away from the
“Holocaust” education project featured in this article. However, I
wish some effective organization would also use this technology to tell the
story of “Gulag” survivors. The Soviet Union is no more, but few
know the tragic stories of these people who are also growing old. The gulag
labor camps lasted into the 1960s. Tragically there is little interest in
America and the former Soviet Union for this subject.Another
interesting aspect of this situation is the following: A former Nazi guard or
administrator of the holocaust camps, who has never been discovered, must still
live in fear of arrest and prosecution in the year 2013. The former guards and
administrators of Soviet labor camps have no fear of arrest and many receive
government pensions in the year 2013. Millions perished in both camp systems.
But the gulag victims have almost no organizations to tell their story.
