Lesson 4: Жизнь в лагере и после

railroadLesson Description:

If this is the first time you are using a RAILS lesson, we recommend that you take a look at the page About the lessons to make sure that you understand how some features of the lessons work.

This is the fourth lesson in a series of nine lessons based on films by Marina Goldovskaya. It is the third lesson based on the film «Власть соловецкая». In this lesson, you will watch a clip in which Dmitrii Likhachev, a famous Russian scholar and former prisoner at the Solovki camp, talks about an execution that occurred at the camp. The lesson consists of four parts: Повседневная жизнь, Расстрел, После лагеря, and Заключение.

You can find the Помощник and Словарь at the end of the lesson for easy reference, but they are also available in the lesson in places where you are most likely to need them.

What You Will Learn:

In this lesson, you will learn about everyday life at the Solovki camp. You will also learn about some of the torture tactics used against prisoners there. You will read from and listen to excerpts of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s work «Архипелаг ГУЛАГ». You will listen to different opinions about how the camps affected prisoners and their families even after the luckiest prisoners returned home.

This lesson is based on the film «Власть соловецкая». Use of excerpts from the films Solovky Power and Children of Ivan Kuzmich in the RAILS lessons is courtesy of Goldfilms.
