Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Birth: Dec. 11, 1918
Stavropol Krai, Russia
Death: Aug. 3, 2008
Moscow
Moscow Federal City, Russia

Russian Novelist. In 1970, he won the Nobel Prize in literature for his writings which made the world aware of the Soviet Union's system of prison and labour camps. Expelled from the Soviet Union in 1974, he continued to write in Germany, Switzerland and the United States. His other celebrated works included "One Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovich", "The First Circle", "The Gulag Archipelago" and "The Russian Question". Returning to Russia in 1994, he was critical for a return to traditional moral values of both the West and Russia's post-Soviet evolution. In a ceremony at the Kremlin, in June 2007, Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded Solzhenitsyn with the State Prize, Russia's highest honor, for his devotion to the "fatherland". He died of heart failure. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
