Walking solo in a GULAG of the Stalin Era – crimes of the past

Walking solo in a GULAG of the Stalin Era – crimes of the past


In Siberia you read too much about GULAG and their guests as well. We had to go to Perm Thirty-Six a former soviet labor camp where country enemies were actually imprisoned. In a forest 100 Km northeast from Perm and closed for tick borne encephalitis as we discovered after two hours in a bouncy minivan we managed to enter the camp because off a kind employee and walked through barbed wire fences and bare dorms with wooden beds. It’s really touching to see how people had to live for minor crimes like being late for work or reading censored books.
