On the 8th of April the exchange students of Plekhanov Russian University of Economics had an excursion to The State Museum of GULAG History, organized by the Students' Council "Buddy System" team.

The exhibition was dedicated to the history of the rise, development and decline of the Soviet labor camp system, an instrumental and integral part of the Soviet state machinery in the 1930s – 50s, and its political, administrative and economic role.
The exhibition room also displays personal cases of various people who fell victims of the Soviet repressive policy and were sentenced to labor camp imprisonment. 


Exchange students had a chance to get to know a documentary archive, letters and memoirs by former GULAG prisoners, their personal belongings and a collection of artworks by former GULAG inmates and contemporary artists offering their own vision of the subject.
