“A man becomes a beast in three weeks given heavy labor, cold, hunger and beatings. There are dogs and bears that behave more intelligently and morally than human beings. ” The words of a poet sent to a Siberian gulag during Stalin’s Great Terror. Breathtaking Russian wilderness.  Brutal forced-labour camps. Abandoned gold mines.  Here, “everything is built on bones.”  Stalin was God.  His popularity is once more rising.
