Modified: 15/03/2010 - 15:12

Almost one million Europeans were deported under the former Soviet Union's Gulag system. RFI and the French National Centre of Scientific Research have collected the stories of 120 survivors in the first ever sound archive devoted to the Gulag experience. Here we present a history of the archive, the background to the Gulag deportations, and a selection of portraits of survivors accompanied by previously unpublished photographs.
