Solzhenitsyn – Banned All Over Again

Solzhenitsyn – Banned All Over Again

Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s last book is facing the same censorship in the West that The Gulag Archipelago faced in the Soviet Union. That’s because it deals with the Jewish role in the Bolshevik Revolution.

Solzhenitsyn’s book Two Hundred Years Together was published in Russian in 2001/2. Since then, German and French editions have been published, but no English-language edition.

 

The Guardian reviewed it as follows:

 

Solzhenitsyn breaks last taboo of the revolution Nobel laureate under fire for new book on the role of Jews in Soviet-era repression

Solzhenitsyn was never a Nazi or Nazi supporter. On the contrary, during World War II he was a Commander in the Soviet Army which conquered East Germany. A letter he wrote, criticising Stalin, was intercepted and opened by the Secret Police, and led to him being sentenced to eight years in the Gulag, after which he was sent to internal exile. During his imprisonment, exile, and treatment for cancer, Solzhenitsyn abandoned Marxism, returned to spiritual values, and repented of some of the things he had done in the Army.

 

The Gulag Archipelago was fiercely criticised in the Soviet press, even though the book was never published there. Similarly, if you study the Wikipedia webpage on Solzhenitsyn, you will note similar fierce attacks on him in the United States, even though his 200YT has never been published there.

Solzhenitsyn was no apologist for Capitalism. He deplored the destruction of the Russian economy after the fall of Communism, and urged the West to turn from decadence and materialism back to spiritual values.

 

He is a prophet for our times.
