Exhibition of Letters by Political Prisoners of GULAG

The International Memorial in Moscow has opened the exhibition Right of Correspondence.

      The exhibition presents letters of political prisoners of the Soviet labor camps of the 1920s–1980s years. The materials are provided from the International Memorial’s Archive.

      The exhibits make a documentary picture about the correspondence mode, the little-known side of the GULAG repressive system. Throughout the entire history of GULAG prohibiting correspondence was one of the most popular ways of punishment.

      The exhibition will run at the address 5/10, Karetny Ryad, Mayakovskaya metro station till May 4, 2015. The open hours are from 11 am till 7 pm every day except Sunday and Monday.
