I am Ludwik Kowalski, a retired nuclear physicist, and the author of two books:

Hell on Earth: Brutality and Violence Under The Stalinist Regime,
and
Tyranny to Freedom: Diary of a Former Stalinist

The first book is about horrors of the Soviet proletarian dictatorship; the second is my diary-based autobiography.

Writing was a moral obligation to my parents, and to millions of other victims of Stalinism.
