Before I start thanks for my reading group for making me do the most boring job just kidding.

"Soviet People And Collective Farms | English Russia." English Russia. N.p., n.d. Web. 31 Aug. 2014. <http://englishrussia.com/2012/10/24/soviet-people-and-collective-farms/>.
Kolkhoz describes a form of a collective farm in the Soviet Union(Russian). I think that it is would help you guys understand the book because this place is one of the places that Shukhov work for and by knowing this term I think that it would help the reader better understand where and in what condition Shukhov was working in.

This word actually means individuals who comprise a group of denominations and churches but on this content I think that there is nothing to do with churches and things like this. So this really confuses me. Can the readers of this post please comment about the word Baptist in the content of the book please tell me what it is in your comment.

"Gulag." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 31 Aug. 2014. Web. 31 Aug. 2014. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulag>.
Gulags are governments agencies in Russia that administered the main soviet forced labor camp system during the Stalin era. I think that readers of this book should know this term because this is the main setting of this book and it might help the readers know where Shukhov is actually held in by this I mean; what type of prison, when and where.

Bendera's men is a general in the soviet army who betrayed his country(Russia) in WWII. And one of Shukhov's friend Gopchik was arrested for delivering milk to them. I think that this term wouldn't actually help the readers of this book massively however I think that it would at least help the readers understand the one of the characters (Gopchik).
