Before I went to visit the Gulag exhibit at Ellis Island, I had steeled myself to see and hear evidence of the great suffering endured by the victims of this atrocious system. Even still, the exhibit astonished me, and I was taken aback at the level of pain that these people endured as recently as twenty years ago! It is wonderful that finally, the unsung accounts of the horrors of the Gulag are openly available for everyone to bear witness to--and believe me, this is something that we all need to know about.
