Survivors of the Gulag

Paula has an amazing post about the survivors of the Romanian gulag on her new blog about those who suffered under Communism in the 20th century.

One ex-inhabitant of that horrific space said: "I was kept here for three days, chained by the wall." I wonder how could one last three days there without going mad. Or without simply dying out of cold and despair. Later I learned that others had to endure there for months…. Share

thank you for the support Elena. Coming from you it means so much for me.

English is not my native language...I hope that I did not make too many mistakes.

Your English is better than mine, dear.

Must be the effect of my Doktorvater (PhD supervisor).

He is German but he criticized my writing in English bitterly.:-)

Thank you.

Oh, but sometimes such criticism can help us to excel.
