Never Remember : Searching for Stalin's Gulags in Putin's Russia Hardback


Masha Gessen is a prominent, bestselling American and Russian journalist and author and one of the most outspoken critics of Putin.

With this book, she travels to the far reaches of Siberia to discover what remains of the Gulags, the hellish work camps begun under Stalin that existed for decades.

What has happened to those work camps? Where are the thousands of victims buried? How are they being memorialized? What she finds is that maintaining the legacy of the Gulags and remembering the victims is more and more difficult as Putin attempts to erase their history with willful forgetting.

Gessen is joined by photographer Michael Friedman, whose black-and-white images provide a photographic essay of their journey.
