The Man Who Lived on Both Sides…

… and we, ( well some of us. ), only heard of his “camping trip”.

Today, in his birth/homeland Russia NOBEL PRIZE recipient ALEXANDR SOLZENITZEN left this plane to a much better place.

Born to Taisia Solzenitsyna, young widow of Isaaky Solzenitsyn, in the town of Kislovodsk, Russia. His father was a self-made man who’d come to acquire a large estate in the Kuban region, soon to to feel the national upheavals of the Bolshevik revolution, (1917-1923). This turned a fairly affluent life into the dire times that brought Alexandr to the familiarity that some know of his literature, drama and historical work. A man who gave the world its knowledge of how the communist government punished the non compliant citizenry in his books: One Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovich, from his observations of a fellow inmate. Later giving us his own story in the work The Gulag of Archipelago. ( Nikita Khrushchev personally allowed the Denisovich printings. ). [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Solzhenitsyn] This man was deported from his birth country February 13, 1974 and came to the United States to settle in Vermont, where he lived until his return to Russia.
