Kuzbass builds GULag museum

An open air museum and a chapel in the memory of Gulag prisoners will be soon built near the town of Tashtagol, the Kemerovo Region. The path from Novokuznetsk to Tashtagol is built on bones of the convicted, Aman Tuleev, the head of region, says. Therefore, it was decided to build a chapel in the village of Chugunash and lay out a cedar park - about 1000 plantlets.
      A big network of Gulag penal labor and transit camps, which housed mainly Germans from the Volga River basin, operated in the Tashtagol region for a long time. The museum will be a copy of an earlier existed camp: a detention facility, cells, barbed wire are to show the Soviet prison life of the 20th century.
