Perm 36

Listed under Museums in Perm', Russia.

Pin It

Perm 36 was one of the most terrible of the Soviet gulags. These prisons built during the communist era were begun as reform camps but became places to inter political prisoners under the most severe of regimes. Perm 36 was a timber plant producing timber in the lead up to World War 2 but became home to political dissidents, anti communist authors and those caught distributing or producing anti communist literature. Perm 36 was one of the last gulags to close in 1987 and is the only camp of its kind on carefully dismantled post communism. Its cells and huts have been instead preserved and now serve as a museum to Russia’s history of political repression.
