    Quite partly cloudy and 77 degrees fahrenheit - 11 mph wind.

    Please, do not feel lost, at least your temperatures are above zero. Here in the North of Denmark during the current wintertime in the late March 2008, we´re down to 9-10 below zero, while the snow like glued to the landscape, reminding us all about the russian winter and the word - most often mentioned in the books of the former Sovjet author, now american naturalised citizen Alexander Solsjenitsyn - the word Gulag.

    Gulag was the name of the specialised highly isolated prison camps in the Northern Sibiria, where hundreds of thousands of Sovjet citizens were sent too, never to leave again alive, if they did not match the profile of, what guys like the socialists Lenin or Stalin would consider good Sovjet citizens.

    Most prisoners died from the extreme cold and never given enough food to eat. Please, read if you dare the book "A Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisowitz", by A. Solsjenitsyn or the story of how to survive in 30-40 degrees below zero C, on one thin slice of black bread per day for years on end.

    Hi Intet,

    Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn moved back to Russia in 1994 after his citizenship had been restored in 1990.

    Cheers,

    Hello Intet,

    Gulag? That is the last association I would expect to read here in the "How's your weather?" thread. Thanks for the info you provided with your last post. I am aware both what Gulag and Auschwitz were. This is truly terrible and disgraceful period of the history. If you would like to read something more you can try with "Inny świat" (eng. A World Apart) by Gustaw Herling-Grudziński. He was Polish essayist, soldier and Gulag prisoner.


    Respectfully,
    Mat

    Not really Mat, to your suggestion to read more about theese terrible inhuman inventions, whether due to Nazi Germany, the Sovjet Union or the US invation of- and inhuman masacres in Vietnam.

    I had a period in my youth, when I also read the books about how the Catholic Church tortured people in the name of God, not to mention the book by the american author John Sack, post his interviews with one world wide known horrific american, the young unexperienced Lieutenant Calley.

    The book, based on more than a hundred hours of interviewing Lieutenant Calley, on how the american military freequently acted like monsters specificly about how he and his platoon of US soldiers, while in Vietnam on the March 16, 1968 wiped out an entire village in South Vietnam with the name Mylai - for no reason at all.

    Innocent Vietnamese men, women, children, pigs, dogs, cats, water buffalos, goats - anything that moved were killed - due to standard orders from the US military headquarters in Saigon, South Vietnam. The expression "Shoot First and Ask Questions Afterwards", come from this particular most violent incident in Vietnam in 1968.

    The American reporter Walter Cronkite made himself a name during the Vietnam War, portraiting the american soldiers acting like true evil monsters due to the American provoked Tet-Offensive in the North of Vietnam.

    Vietnam was also the war, when the world realised that an American President actually gave permission to the US military to drop Napalm and Agent Orange for 42 consecutive days and nights from B52 airplane bombers. The ones of us who are old enough can remember the images from the TV and newspapers of young children running on an anonymus country road with the skin burned off their young bodies.

    Of course finally in 1973 the USA were kicked out of Saigon and South Vietnam by the V.C (vietcong), having mostly to leave everything of machinery, to find room for the soldiers and diplomatic employes from the embassy, on the huge US sea carriers.

    This thursday morning the snow seems to have lost it´s interest for Denmark. In fact, not much left. The sun was here yesterday, shining bright and clearly and certainly today as well. No winds, not many white clouds - this could in fact be the end of the Danish winter progressing into the beautiful Danish spring time - On a Brand New Day with the temperature past the record making of 60 degrees fahrenheit.

    Yesterday warm and pleasant. Today cold and wet, the clocks change on Sunday, so I am hoping for a little improvement.
