Book of the Year in Russia 2021
The great epic novel ETERNAL FROST by Viktor Remizov is set against the background of the construction of the “Great Stalin Railway” on the Arctic Circle in Siberia, on which up to 80,000 prisoners of the GULAG were simultaneously working between 1947 and 1953 when Stalin died. It is one of the most tragic projects of the Stalinist machinery of repression. In 2023 we see the 70th anniversary of Stalin’s death and of the closing of the “Great Stalin Railway”.
