Soviet special camp 1: regional lists

The total number of imprisoned persons in Soviet special camps is estimated to be between 122.000 and 180.000, varying in different sources. There is no information how many persons were imprisoned in a certain region or in a certain municipality. Here we try to compile a list from the several single or distributed data that have been published. The general availability of these data will help to diminish myths and wrong prejudice on persons in Soviet special camps. Do you have any information on the number of NKVD prisoners in a special village or town? How many of them died in the Soviet camps?

The following lists are researched with best available knowledge. In most cases, they are incomplete and require further local regional research in order to clarify biographies.


Soviet special camp 1: selected persons in the camp

A number of the small pictures are taken from the manuscript Zur Geschichte des sowjetischen Speziallagers Nr. 6 in Jamlitz 1945-1947 by Andreas Weigelt (Brandenburgische Historische Hefte 16, 2001). Other pictures come from Wikipedia or other sources. Clicking on the image leads in most cases to the source document.

The character ' ' indicates that the person died in a Soviet special camp. If not indicated otherwise, the person died in camp Mühlberg.
