    I'm looking for a new read and was wondering if anyone on here recommend a specific book regarding this topic?

    As the title states, I'm interested in the subject of Gulag survivors. I am sure that there were some German POW's that survived it and wrote a book about their accounts.

    Thanks guys.

    Marko.

    It may now be out of print as it was published in 1983

    How about The Gulag Archipelago (Russian: Архипелаг ГУЛАГ, Arkhipelag GULAG) by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn? Very interesting and very big!
