PREFACE by BERTRAND RUSSELL: OF the many books that I have read relating the experiences of victims in Soviet prisons and labour camps, Mr. Gustav Herlings A World Apart is the most impressive and the best written. He possesses in a very rare degree the power of simple and vivid description, and it is quite impossible to question his sincerity at any point. In the years 1940-42 he was first in prison and then in a forced labour camp near Archangel. The bulk of the book relates what he saw and suffered in the camp. The book ends with letters from eminent Communists saying that no such camps exist. Those who write these letters and those fellow-travelers who allow themselves to believe them share responsibility for the almost unbelievable horrors which are being inflicted upon millions of wretched men and women, slowly done to death by hard labour and starvation in the Arctic cold. Fellow-travelers who refuse to believe the evidence of books such as Mr. Herlings are necessarily people devoid of humanity, for if they had any humanity they would not merely dismiss the evidence, but would take some trouble to look into it. Communists and Nazis alike have tragically demonstrated that in a large proportion of mankind the impulse to inflict torture exists, and requires only opportunity to display itself in all its naked horror. But I do not think that these evils can be cured by blind hatred of their perpetrators. This will only lead us to become like them. Although the effort is not easy, one should attempt, in reading such a book as this one, to understand the circumstances that turn men into fiends, and to realize that it is not by blind rage that such evils will be prevented. I do not say that to understand is to pardon there are things which for my part I find I cannot pardon. But I do say that to understand is absolutely necessary if the spread of similar evils over the whole world is to be prevented
The island : three tales by Gustaw Herling-Grudziński( Book )

15 editions published between 1967 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The title story takes place on an island off the coast of Naples, where a decaying monastery casts its shadow over the timeless, isolated world. A gifted young stonemason loses his sight and his senses in a mysterious, grisly accident, an accident that deeply affects the lives of his fiancee, the priest who buries her stillborn child, and the few monks left in the old monastery. "The Tower" tells a haunting story-within-a-story of a leper in the eighteenth century

Volcano and Miracle : a selection of fiction and nonfiction from the journal written at night by Gustaw Herling-Grudziński( Book )

61 editions published between 1973 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Volcano and Miracle is a selection of fiction and prose writings from Gustaw Herling's masterwork, The Journal Written at Night. The Journal is an account of events and reflections that offer the occasion for this great writer to continue rethinking and reimagining the human condition. These remarkable selections from Gustaw Herling's Journal, written from 1970 to the present, include such astonishing fictional tales, based on historical sources, as "Rubble," "The Duke of Milan," "The Miracle," and "A Venetian Portrait," a love story that takes place at the end of World War II. But the heart of the Journal is brilliant critical pieces on Soviet Communism and literary gems on such writers as Ignazio Silone, Stendhal, Melville, Kafka, Dostoevsky, and Camus."--Rabat de la jaquette
