30 Years Ago

On February 13, 1974 Alexander I. Solzhenitsyn was expelled from the Soviet Union and on February 14, 1974 the Soviet Union formally charged him with treason. Which is somewhat bassackwards since he was now a free man, but the charge was mere propaganda.

On February 19, 1974, Solzhenitsyn’s family was released from Soviet bondage and joined him in Switzerland.
