Gulag: Many Days, Many Lives
The first in CHNM’s new program of online exhibitions, GULAG: Many Days, Many Lives will immerse visitors in the varied experiences the vast and brutal Soviet prison camp system. The Gulag existed neither as a single unified experience, nor as a single unified institution. Comprised of a variety of forms of harsh detention for a diversity of prisoners, it existed as a massive machine influencing the lives of countless people. GULAG: Many Days, Many Lives will present this diversity of experience through full prisoner biographies, audio and video clips, an extensive primary source archive, and a set of illustrated, narrative exhibits. In cooperation with the Gulag Museum of Perm, Russia, the website will also offer a virtual tour of a reconstructed prison camp. GULAG: Many Days, Many Lives is scheduled to launch in Spring 2008.
