European Memories

of the Gulag


Beauty of Siberia

For Naum Kleiman, the first step towards freedom was to be allowed to go to boarding school in Barit. He felt this when his father took him from Yunka, where they lived, to this other village, 8 km away. They discovered the unbelievable beauty of the sun rising through the high grasses.
He felt another advance towards freedom when the family were allowed to go to Guryevsk, a town!
