CANNIBAL ISLAND DEATH IN A SIBERIAN GULAG PDF

However, unlike the previous plan, resources available to support the new plan were severely limited by the ongoing famine in the Soviet Union. Instead, many of the deportees were people from Moscow and Leningrad who had been unable to obtain an internal passport. The passportization campaign in the Soviet Union began with a decision by the Politburo on December 27, to issue internal passports to all residents of major cities, and one of their objectives was to "cleanse Moscow, Leningrad and the other great urban centers of the USSR of superfluous elements not connected with production or administrative work, as well as kulaks, criminals, and other antisocial and socially dangerous elements. Their backgrounds meant they were not issued passports, and they could be arrested and deported from the cities after a summary administrative procedure. Most of the arrestees were deported within two days.

A real story of death, suffering and violence. What impresses me the most is how an ideology that was built on the foundations of solidarity, equality and justice gave rise to probably the most monstrous regime ever built in the history of mankind. The repressive machine, built up with bureaucratic precision, with quotas, objectives and teams desperate to reach their targets rounding up people to be sent to An impressive book.

The repressive machine, built up with bureaucratic precision, with quotas, objectives and teams desperate to reach their targets rounding up people to be sent to death camps with no particular reason.

Authorities desperate with the influx of prisoners that could not be accommodated or supported trying to get rid of them as soon as possible. And the prisoners themselves trying to make sense of what was going on and using all their powers to survive. A complete political nightmare that is precisely described with clinical objectivity. Very sad. In an effort to fill quotas, officers in cities picked up anyone without a passport.

In one example a young girl of twelve left at the An interesting chapter in the history of the Soviets and prequel for what would eventually become known as "The Great Terror". In one example a young girl of twelve left at the station by her mother is picked up and shipped off. In other places the old, infirm, the mentally unstable are put onto trains and shipped off.

In another a man who had missed his stop asked if he could get a ride back and when he was treated rudely by the guard he unwisely raised his voice and he too was shipped off. This writing is rife with examples of people who were loyal party members and even when they had proof, it was ignored.

The numbers are staggering. Criminal elements, also among those expelled from the cities, take advantage. Eventually, the turn to cannibalism is more out of desperation than anything else.

The stories are horrifying. The only thing that could be more so is maybe the idea that this could also happen here. However, if history is your thing, and you want attention to detail, specific numbers, dates and such, its great.

It was truly quite eye opening, the sheer numbers of people being deported and arrested for crimes such as having once been anything more than a peasant before the revolution, or just unfortunate enough to have been picked up in order to help fill a quota.
