Synopsis by Alice Day
In the last installment of the series, discussion continues regarding the horrors of the gulags, a network of labor camps built under orders from Stalin. Wide Country, Vol. 3: Siberia's Path into the Future looks at the fate of the Volga Germans, who encountered intense hostility during WWII. The program also provides information about the transfer of Allied planes into Russian hands through the Alaska/Siberia connection. As more areas in Siberia have become populated, ecological concerns have not been addressed, and any questions about Siberia's future must bear that in mind.
