The Wounds of the Twentieth Century

Alexander Solzhenitsyn on the crimes of history in an interview with Der Spiegel: "We should clearly understand that only the voluntary and conscientious acceptance by a people of its guilt can ensure the healing of a nation. Unremitting reproaches from outside, on the other hand, are counterproductive." On Russia and the West: "...one can see a time in the 21st century when both Europe and the USA will be in dire need of Russia as an ally."
