Donald Weber‘s White Nights: Russia After the Gulag.

Weber‘s use of color is unbelievable.

When Lenin took power in Russia by 1919, 16,000 people were in Czarist prisons.

Two years later, the Bolsheviks sentenced 70,000 men, women and children to corrective labour camps, as they were now called.

Eventually 30 million people fell into the gulags, before they were officially abolished in 1960.

The survivors are known as Russians.
