The aim of the international project Central European Map of the Gulag, which was carried out during 2016, is to recall the tragic fates of citizens of Czechoslovakia, Poland and Hungary who fell victim to the Gulag and the Soviet regime of repression. The result of the project is an interactive map of the Gulag including places of Soviet repression in the USSR and Central European countries including the testimonies of survivors and a database of labour camps. We also documented abandoned labour camps in Siberia. We were developing the interactive map with the Russian organisation Memorial and researchers from the other countries taking part.
The project’s partners are the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes (CR), the Institute of National Remembrance (Poland), the Remembrance and Future Institute (Poland), Post Bellum SK (Slovakia) and the association NémetKor (Hungary). The results of the project will be incorporated into the Gulag Online virtual museum.
The project was supported by the International Visegrad Fund.
