Gulag Town, Company Town Forced Labor and its Legacy in Vorkuta

Gulag Town, Company Town Forced Labor and its Legacy in Vorkuta

Author: Alan Barenberg Format: Hardback Release Date: 02/09/2014

This insightful volume offers a radical reassessment of the infamous Gulag Archipelago by exploring the history of Vorkuta, an arctic coal-mining outpost originally established in the 1930s as a prison camp complex. Author Alan Barenberg's eye-opening study reveals Vorkuta as an active urban centre with a substantial nonprisoner population where the borders separating camp and city were contested and permeable, enabling prisoners to establish social connections that would eventually aid them in their transitions to civilian life. With this book, Barenberg makes an important historical contribution to our understanding of forced labour in the Soviet Union and its enduring legacy.
