This virtual exhibition uncovers the history of The Sovoloki Camp, the ‘first Gulag’ labour camp of the USSR, instated for the ‘re-education’ of undesirable citizens. Explore the unique circumstances that led to this camp and how the cultural activity of the intelligentsia held there formed a resistance to the systematic violence and oppression.
Beauty in Hell: Culture in the Gulag highlights current research by Dr Andrea Gullotta, Lecturer in Russian Studies at the University of Glasgow.
