The Gulag: what we know now and why it matters


Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Anne Applebaum
Chair: Professor Arne Westad

Recorded on 20 November 2012 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

We now understand far better what the gulag was, how it evolved, what purposes it served, how many people lived and died within it. Yet what do we really remember of the camp system? What do Russians remember? And how does that memory, or the lack of it, affect Russian politics today?

Anne Applebaum is Philippe Roman Chair in History and International Affairs at LSE IDEAS for 2012-13.
