Alexander Solzhenitsyn 1918-2008

One of the great Soviet dissidents and one whose critiques of the communist system transcended to sheer poetry, mixed with a surgeons knife in it's analysis.
And much missed, although I am concerned that for someone who was a big name in the 1970s he is almost forgotten

Would that our schools/media talked about authors - chroniclers of events - like Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Primo Levi; if we don't remember the lessons of history we will be prone to repeat the inhumanities.
