Three Years After the War

These photographs were taken during the expedition in the Arkhangelsk region in 1948. The region had severely suffered during the war – worse than the neighboring Murmansk region and Karelia. It had been the territory of bloody battles. That is why this region became the place for mass evacuation of people from the entire north-west of the country – the region accepted more than 100 thousand people, as well as hundreds of enterprises. The villages were not destroyed, they preserved the same mode of life.

  1. That’s one thing Russia knows….wars and citizen oppression. I’m fortunate my grandparents left Russia for the U.S. in the early 1900’s.
