The Victims Return: 2 of 2: Survivors of the Gulag after Stalin by Stephen F. Cohen

https://www.amazon.com/Victims-Return-Survivors-Gulag-Stalin/dp/1933002409/ref=sr12?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1543197425&sr=1-2&keywords=Stephen+Cohen+Survivor%27s+Return

Joseph Stalin's reign of terror in the Soviet Union has been called "the other holocaust." Over the course of 24 years, more innocent men, women, and children perished than died in Hitler's murder of European Jews. This book originated 30 years ago when Stephen F. Cohen, a professor of Russian studies and history at New York University, first began researching the lives of those victims released after Stalin's death. There was precious little information available, and many of the victims were still afraid, but Cohen persisted, and through the years accumulated the remarkable stories of their return to society.
