The camp was opened in the beginning of 1938, when it received the first stages of the prisoners - mostly members of the families of traitors. According to incomplete data, the number of repressed exceeded 18,000 convicts.

In 2007 at the former site of the correctional camp was opened as the Museum and Memorial Complex of Victims of Political Repression and Totalitarism, which you will visit during the tour.
