Still another vexed subject is the relation of the Soviet slave-labor system to the Nazi concentration camps. As Applebaum points out, there were many critical differences between them. Certainly no single minority was scheduled for annihilation as were the Jews in the Third Reich. In contrast to Germany, moreover, where the targets of repression were clearly identified, the enemy in Russia was much less precisely defined: people who were members of the ruling elite on one day could find themselves prisoners on the next.

Applebaum documents many instances of jailers and their higher-ups ending up as inmates—and vice-versa. Although fatalities were common in the Gulag, there were no camps like Auschwitz whose primary purpose was human slaughter. Mass executions did take place, but there were also random releases of prisoners.

And while many camp commandants readily neglected or tormented their prisoners, a few strove to improve conditions. But Applebaum does not make the mistake of overemphasizing these differences, in the manner of historians sympathetic to the Soviet cause who have refused to acknowledge similarities between Communist and Nazi dictatorships.

The heart of Gulag is a moving chronicle of the collective experiences of these millions of individuals—male and female, adult and child, Russian and non-Russian. Applebaum follows them as they underwent arrest, interrogation, and transport to the camps, and continues her harrowing narrative with chapters on work, life, and death after arrival. At some levels this part of the story is familiar from memoirs that have been available for years, but Applebaum adds new material from a host of archives and numerous interviews with former inmates, their family members, and former guards.

In so doing, she is able to provide the most thorough and subtle treatment of the subject to date. She also breaks new ground with information on the inmate uprisings that rocked the postwar Gulag, on the demise of the slave economy under Khrushchev, and on the political prisons of the final decades of the Soviet Union—which, although a far cry from those of earlier years, retained enough similar features to crush a new generation of dissidents.

For these reasons alone, her book is not likely to be surpassed any time soon. Just as appropriately, Applebaum pleads that the rest of the world pay greater attention to the history of the Gulag. No one can comprehend 20th-century history or truly appreciate the imperiled condition of a good portion of humanity in our own time without an understanding of the Gulag.
