Barabanicha labour camp

A vast camp for an estimated 1,000 prisoners. Unlike the other camps mapped, this one includes a hospital, large clubhouse, dog kennels and several types of prison buildings.

It is the best-preserved camp we have mapped. The majority of buildings are still standing and contain a great number of original artefacts. Most of the materials drawn on in the reconstruction of the model Gulag camp in the virtual tour come from the Barabanicha camp.

Subordinate to: Ermakovo, Gulag Construction no. 503 (Dead Road)
Mapped: August 2009, September 2013
