The Gulag: What Grandfather Didn't Tell

Anton Weiss-Wendt, head of the research department at the HL-centre, has traced the story of his grandfather who was a prisoner in Stalin’s Gulag.  By searching through both Russian archives, as well as personal documents and photographs his grandfather left behind, Anton Weiss-Wendt has unravelled his grandfather’s past.

This exhibition offers a personal journey through the Soviet prison system, and discusses how former prisoners and Russian society dealt with Stalin’s brutality in the years post Gulag.
