Varlam Shalamov

June 5 (18), 1907, Vologda - January 17, 1982, Moscow

Varlam Shalamov, son of a priest, was born in Vologda. In 1924, he moved to Moscow, where he studied law at Moscow State University from 1926 to 1928. Denounced by a fellow student and expelled from the university for “concealing his social background,” he was arrested on February 19, 1929, and sentenced to three years of hard labor for participating in an underground Trotskyite group that disseminated the so-called “Lenin’s Testament.” He spent his first prison sentence in Vishera. In 1932, Shalamov returned to Moscow and worked as a journalist. But in January, 1937, he was arrested again for “counter-revolutionary Trotskyite activity,” sentenced to five years, and sent to Kolyma.
