Gulag bibliography

Sarah J. Young's picture
Dear all,
I have started a bibliography/metadata project on Russian/Soviet labour camp narratives and published the first version, focusing on memoirs of the Soviet Gulag, this week:  The first version has around 750 entries, and I will be updating it regularly. I am currently considering platforms for enabling collaboration. If you are interested in being involved, please get in touch. For more information on the project, see:
I've also compiled a separate list of memoirs in English, which I hope will be particularly useful for students:

Hello Dr Young

Could the following title be of any use to you ?

The Kishinev Ghetto, 1941-1942: A Documentary History of the Holocaust in Romania's Contested Borderlands
by Paul A. Shapiro (University of Alabama Press, 2015)

Dear Dr. Young,

You should consider adding the memoir of Pola Weizman, published by Yad Vashem in 2006 in Hebrew. This memoir of a 19 year old Polish-Jewish young woman also includes her drawings depicting the journey to the camp in Siberia as she was fleeing eastward from the Nazis, depictions of camp life, and her journey, after liberation, to reach Teheran and ultimately British-Mandatory Palestine.

As a footnote, the drawings are in the collection of the Yad Vashem Art Museum, Jerusalem.
