Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Funeral

Today Russia paid their respects to Alexander Solzhenitsyn at Moscow’s Donskoi Russian Orthodox monestary cathedral. A short video presenting glimpses of the funeral is available here. Meanwhile in many Western world newspapers, coverage of Solzhenitsyn’s death and funeral has been rather sparse. May Alexander Solzhenitsyn rest in Christ’s eternal peace.

    I so much remember Solzhenitsyn as he was in Norway a lot of times and he was a good friend of some of the Norwegian news paper editors. A great man!
