[Russia] Les camps de concentration en Union Soviétique. “Jamais ça en France” Votez Socialiste S.F.I.O.

Raro manifesto di propaganda anti-sovietica edito dalla sezione francese dell’unione internazionale dei lavoratori che mostra la rete dei “Gulag”, i campi di prigionia e di lavoro forzato nell’Unione Sovietica. La mappa, che raffigura l’intera Russia dal Mar Baltico allo Stretto di Bering, evidenzia con delle aree in rosso l’ubicazione e l’estensione dei campi di lavoro forzato: con il simbolo della falce e del martello si indicano i campi amministrati localmente, mentre i punti rossi rappresentano i campi sotto il controllo centralizzato. Il primo lavoro di “mappatura” dei gulag sovietici è attribuito ai soldati polacchi Sylvester Mora e Pierre Zwierniak, che per primi disegnarono una carta per accompagnare il loro libro del 1945 Sprawiedliwość Sowiecka (Giustizia Sovietica).
I Gulag furono creati immediatamente dopo la Rivoluzione Russa sotto l’amministrazione di Lenin, presero il nome dall’acronimo della frase russa “Direzione principale dei campi di lavoro correttivi” e nonostante fossero stati pensati per la generalità dei criminali, il sistema è noto soprattutto come mezzo di repressione degli oppositori politici dell’Unione Sovietica. Tutti gli occupanti vivevano in condizioni estremamente difficili, segnate da cibo povero, lavori pesanti e alta mortalità. Dopo la seconda guerra mondiale, le dimensioni e la brutalità del Gulag fornirono molte ragioni alla propaganda anti-sovietica durante la Guerra Fredda.
