An Incident at Krechetovka Station (Russian: Случай на станции Кречетовка) is a novella by Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, published in the Soviet literary magazine Novyi Mir (New World) in 1963. It is one of the few works of prose written by the author that are set during World War II and is said to have been based upon real life events witnessed by the author. The novella's original title was "Случай на станции Кочетовка" (An Incident at Kochetovka Station) – this is the authentic name of a small railway town in the general area implied by hints in the course of the story – but a change was forced upon Solzhenitsyn by the Novyi Mir editorial board due to its allegorical association with the name of Vsevolod Kochetov, then editor-in-chief of the conservative Soviet literary magazine Oktiabr' (October). In later editions, the author restored the name of the station back to "Kochetovka". Source: Wikipedia (en)
