Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn , winner of the 1970 Nobel Prize in Literature , who survived eight years of Gulag incarceration, gave the term its international repute with the publication of The Gulag Archipelago in 1973. The author likened the scattered camps to "a chain of islands" and as an eyewitness he described the Gulag as a system where people were worked to death. [5] Some scholars support this view, [6] [7] though this claim is controversial, given that the vast majority of people who entered the Gulag came out alive, with the exception of the war years. [8] Natalya Reshetovskaya, the wife of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, said in her memoirs that The Gulag Archipelago was based on "campfire folklore" as opposed to objective facts. [9] Numerous other accounts from survivors state otherwise, and the Mitrokhin Archive claimed that these memoirs were part of a KGB campaign, orchestrated by Yuri Andropov in 1974, to discredit Solzhenitsyn. [10] However, this archive itself has its veracity in doubt; among other, more practical issues, by the same token with which Vasili Mitrokhin claimed the Soviet government would obviously be interested in discrediting Solzhenitsyn, Western governments would have as much interest in lending him credence. In March 1940, there were 53 Gulag camp directorates (colloquially referred to as simply "camps") and 423 labor colonies in the USSR. [11] Today's major industrial cities of the Russian Arctic , such as Norilsk , Vorkuta , and Magadan , were originally camps built by prisoners and run by ex-prisoners. [12]
