Solzhenitsyn RIP

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn recently died. Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago was the first book I ever read that I can remember Stalin's national deportations being mentioned. It was not the first book to deal with Soviet ethnic cleansing. But, it was the first exposure to these facts that many people in the US and other countries including myself received.
