Thanks from The Film-Makers

While talking to Cyclops Vision, the guys behind the documentary Tovarisch, I Am Not Dead, it became clear that they have carried out an incredible amount of research on the conditions that Garri Urban and so many others suffered in Stalin's Gulags.

As well as drawing on Garri Urban's memoirs and the recordings made by his son Stuart during their exploration of Garri's past life, the documentary-makers consulted many specialists in the field of the Russian Gulags and the conditions suffered by so many in the Nazi concentration camps.

Principal among those that were consulted were Anne Applebaum and Sir Martin Gilbert.

Stuart Urban and Cyclops Vision were keen to pass on their thanks to Anne who is described as "a key participant in this documentary". Anne is the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Gulag: A History, which was published in April 2003.

The production team also wanted to pass on their thanks to Sir Martin Gilbert for his assistance with the documentary. Sir Martin is the author of The Holocaust: The Jewish Tragedy , which is considered to be a classic work on the subject from one of the leading historians of the modern world.
