At the Russia’s Karelian Republic, somewhere between Medvezhyegorsk and Povenets, there is an unassuming tract of forest with a dark memory underneath. During the Great Purges, more than 10 000 people were executed and buried here, some of them from the nearby villages, others brought from the Solovki Gulag camp. The nameless people were forgotten there for sixty years before Russian human rights society Memorial found the mass graves at 1997. After that, Sandarmokh became a site of commemoration, and monuments & crosses began to emerge. This is one of them, memorial cross for Evgenia Yakovlevna Mustangova.
