KIRKUS REVIEW

An almost unbelievable but a really unforgettable picture of the horrors, terrors, inhuman treatment of all the prisoners in Russian concentration camps. The authors have obtained evidence from eyewitnesses and escaped prisoners telling of the work, sanitary conditions, food and general life in labor camps. They also list a large number of types of camps and estimate over 10,000 prisoners, with camps in certain areas with 1,000,000 prisoners. They show that forced labor is merely slave labor and that Russia believes in this type of cheap labor; that much of the construction of railroads, lumber camps, cities, mines, etc., are due to this type of labor. Yes, an ugly picture, and no doubt much political capital will be made of this book. Although not for the general public, the general public will certainly hear of it.
