"Woe to that nation whose literature
is cut short by the intrusion of force.
This is not merely interference
with freedom of the press but
the sealing up of a nation's heart,
the excision of its memory."
(1918-2008) Russian novelist, Soviet dissident, imprisoned for 8 years for critizing Stalin in a personal letter, Nobel Prize for Literature, 1970
Time, 25 February 1974
