''Literature/TheGulagArchipelago'', ''Literature/TheFirstCircle'' (about the Sharashka system) and ''Literature/OneDayInTheLifeOfIvanDenisovich'', all by the late, great Creator/AleksandrSolzhenitsyn, are highly recommended further reading. On the other hand many people criticize Solzhenitsyn for being biased and not entirely truthful, so the most informative author is probably Varlam Shalamov, also a former inmate of the Gulag, but not politically motivated and generally regarded as more accurate.

* Not all the camps were up in Siberia. Many inmates would probably be sent off to a camp or prison closer to home before being transferred somewhere else. For example AleksandrSolzhenitsyn was incarcerated inside a fenced-in slum village in southern Kazakhstan, where he almost died from the terrible conditions, lack of fresh water and rampant diseases.
