      UNOH's library to host Gulag exhibit
      Published: Saturday, May 31, 2008 (9 hours, 37 minutes ago) Print E-
      mail The University of Northwestern Ohio is hosting a traveling GULAG
      exhibit about Russian labor camp Perm-36 June 6 through July 25 in
      the UNOH library on the university's campus at 1441 North Cable Road.
      An opening address will be given at 2 p.m. June 6 by UNOH Professor
      Dr. Holly Norton. Dr. Norton visited Russia 2006 for one month for
      the Fulbright fellowship and had the opportunity to visit the Gulag
      Museum at Perm 36.
      GULAG is the acronym for the Soviet bureaucratic institution, Glavnoe
      Upravlenie Ispravitel'no-trudovykh LAGerei (Main Administration of
      Corrective Labor Camps) that operated the Soviet system of forced
      labor camps during the Stalin era. The term Gulag has evolved to
      represent the entire Soviet Union forced labor penal system.
      Concentration camps were created in the Soviet Union shortly after
      the 1917 revolution, but the forced labor system grew to enormous
      proportions during Stalin's reign.
      The exhibit tells the story of the infamous Soviet prison camp where
      political dissidents lived behind barbed wire and toiled daily for
      meager rations. Included are photos of prominent Perm-36 prisoners,
      such as an editor jailed for publishing an illegal newspaper and a
      human rights activist whose father became an invalid while imprisoned
      in Soviet labor camps. The display also features statements from
      former prisoners, excerpts of Soviet-era regulations banning
      dissension and an authentic prison shirt.
      The Gulag exhibit is presented by Midwest Institute and the Gulag
      Museum at Perm-36.
      The exhibit will be available for viewing from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
      Mondays through Thursdays; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays; and 8 a.m. to
      noon on Saturdays.
      For more information, contact Georgena Nanson at 419-998-3131.

          Krysia,

          Thanks for the link. 20 million people sent to the camps in Siberia
          for a guess seems low. How sad when Russia has such fantastic files
          that they hold back the names and history. Hopefully someday soon
          they will respectfully release them? With movies, books and all the
          political pressure it's no longer such a secret.

            Hi Carol;

            yes you are right one day everything will be disclosed, perhaps as more and more of very  brave westerners who are making pilgrimages to pay homage to their tortured and dead relatives and return with films and pictures as evidence of the transpired crimes against Polish citizens by Russia.

            pozdrawiam Krysia
