Today, I visited the exhibit at Ellis Island and I was completely shocked by the graphic description of the daily life of a gulag prisoner. It is unimaginable that governments could commit such horrors to its own people. It is very important for this history to live on and for people to know of the brutality that went on behind the iron curtain. Thank you to the organizers of the exhibit who have offered the public an incredible look into the dark history of the gulag.
