Raise your hand if you love Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn!!!  I sure do- am reading The Gulag Archipelago.  He was the true voice of Russia...totally understand why they tried so hard to silence one likes to hear the truth about themselves, especially when it's painful.  He paints a picture, in black, of all the cruelty he witnessed in 20th century Russia.  His dedication of the book tears your heart right out.
"I dedicate this 
to all those who did not live
to tell it.
And may they please forgive me
for not having seen it all
nor remembered it all,
for not having divined all of it."
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
