camps (+ prisoner no)
Great Purge 1937: In the summer of 1937 Polish Catholic priests held in Solovetsky Islands, Anzer Island and BelBaltLag were locked in prison cells (some in Sankt Petersburg). Next in a few kangaroo, murderous Russian trials (on 09.10.1937, 25.11.1937, among others) run by so‑called „Troika NKVD” all were sentenced to death. They were subsequently executed by a single shot to the back of the head. The murders took place either in Sankt Petersburg prison or directly in places of mass murder, e.g. Sandarmokh or Levashov Wilderness, where their bodies were dumped into the ditches. Other priests were arrested in the places they still ministered in and next murdered in local NKVD headquarters (e.g. in Minsk in Belarus), after equally genocidal trials run by aforementioned „Troika NKVD” kangaroo courts.
Forced exile: One of the standard Russian forms of repression. The prisoners were usually taken to a small village in the middle of nowhere — somewhere in Siberia, in far north or far east — dropped out of the train carriage or a cart, left out without means of subsistence or place to live.

VorkutLag: Russian complex of concentration camps and forced labour camp (part of Gulag penal system), near Vorkuta in Komi republic, created on 10.15.1938 — as a result of the split of larger UktpechLag complex of camps — where Russians held many Poles prisoners. Up to 75,000 (at peak — in 1950‑1 — c. 100,000) prisoners slaved there mainly in coal mines. In the most tragic 1943 c. 15.5% of prisoners held in the camp perished. Total number of victims of Vorkuta camps remains unknown. (more on: pl.wikipedia.orgClick to attempt to display webpage
