The International Gulag
This unusual documentary film gives evidence to how hundreds of thousands of foreigners from all nations, were secretly deported in to Soviet forced labour camps, into the Gulag. It is said that every nation on earth was represented in the Gulag. Thus, American, Japanese, Frech, British, German, Italians, Swiss, Chinese, all became part of the Zeks, the Russian slang for gulag prisoners.
This firm exposes the grusame crime against humanity, a time period history has overlooked. The filmmakers took a hardfull of survivers, and traced their steps bak into their slave camps. The short tome in wich the secret KGB archives were open, proof was shed to the enormous size of the International Gulag. One speaks of approximate 30 million victoms, the true number may never be known. A written command by Lenin himselfe, written in 1918, ordered the careless arrest of foreigners in the land.
The International Gulag is a great historical document, a warning for today and for ever more.
