Dark Pages Of The Russian History

GULag (penal labor camp systems in Kolyma) is one of the darkest pages in the history of the XXth century. Here are some pictures made at the Ivan Panikarov’s Museum dedicated to this topic.

This picture was drawn on the flour sack exporting from the USA during the war

  1. A. Bunka. Hold the phone, now you,ve gone too far! This intracunubial painting of Sambo and that white woman there. If this was the old South they would throw you into the camp for that. (Or worse).

  2. I especially like the roofing sheet fashioned from cans. Reuse/recycling was another area where Soviets were ahead of the rest of world!

  3. What a horror that whole system was. Anybody know who the lost soul was that painted that from a sack of lend lease flour? My guess just a number on a list that was then misplaced.

  4. The Stolichnaya and Moskovskaya vodka is really good. I keep a bottle of each at hand at all times. Prisoners in the Gulag would have needed it.

  5. This little exhibit is just the tip of the iceberg.

    With the evidence either destroyed or weathered into dust, and the prisoners mostly dead, leaving few to tell their stories, this exhibit serves not only as a memorial and a warning, but a testament of triumph to the abominable Soviet Union.
