Photojournalism: Stations of the Cross in Spassk


Elżbieta Dziuk-Renik

A cementary in Spassk near Karaganda in Kazakhstan. It is a difficult place for a photographer. This is where dead prisoners of a special NKVD camp were buried. First, it was a camp for prisoners of war. After World War II it became a forced labour camp for political prisoners. The camp was a part of the Karagandian Corrective Labor Camp (Karlag). Thereby it was a part of Stalinist system of labour camps.
