Apart from the memorial cemeteries, there are hundreds of nameless places where Gulag prisoners were executed all around Russia and other former Soviet countries. This inconspicuous tract of forest some ten kilometres from the small city of Mariinsk in Siberia is one of them. At 1930s and 1940s, when Siblag camp was operating nearby in an red-brick prison, condemned prisoners were brough here and shot to death. It’s not known what the officials did with the bodies, as only few of them were later found from the area. Nowadays the site is some 100 metres from the local road, and on the roadside there is a small plaque with a poem, and a solemn stone monument. Names of the perished prisoners are mostly unknown, and there is nothing on the site itself to tell its tragic story.
