I have read esperantists have been politicially oppressed throughout history, by such people as Hitler, Stalin, and even Saddam Hussein. Stalin, in particular, is said to have ordered a massive, deadly purge of esperantists in the USSR. Unfortunately, I only ever see brief mentions of these episodes. Can anyone point me to more detailed historical accounts of oppression of esperantists? Memoirs of those times, written by survivors of the oppression, would be especially welcome. Thanks for any help or info you can provide.

The suppression of Esperanto by Hitler and Stalin is about halfway down.
