    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.
