MUSEUM

The GULAG History Museum

This museum is dedicated to the victims of mass repressions under the Soviet regime
The GULAG History Museum falls into the category of a memorial museum, due to its subject matter, mission and historical background. It is intended to be public space that exposes, studies and brings to light the problems related to the history of mass repressions, forced labour, and lack of political freedom in the USSR.

Direct Broadcast of the Temple of Memory
The museum's exhibition features a reading of the 40,000 names of the victims of mass repressions. The public reading is an act of remembrance to ensure that the repressions are not forgotten.
The My GULAG Archive of Video Interviews
The museum personnel have filmed interviews with ex-prisoners of labour camps and family members who were directly affected by the mass repressions, as well as with employees of the GULAG system. Each video tells the story of a particular prisoner or their relatives, including their arrest, investigation and sentence. However, every film also represents an individual tragedy. In many cases, this is the first time the interviewee has chosen to tell his story.
