Deportations: 1944–1953

Deportations, the mass evictions of people from their places of residence to the remotest regions of the Soviet Union, were one of the most brutal measures taken by the Soviet regime against civilians. Entire families, parents, grandparents, children, newborn babies and the sick, were secretly, usually in the dead of night, carried away in cattle cars. The documentary material displayed acquaints visitors with the procedures of organising and carrying out deportations, the legal status and living conditions of the deportees, and statistical documents about the deportations. Documentary and feature films, and photographs of burial grounds in Siberia, supplement the factual information, and show the fate and misery of the people who suffered humiliation and injustice.
