Appendix 8

Surviving the Forced Labor Camps to Return

After deportation, the deportees were in some cases sentenced for insubordination from 5 to 25 years’ imprisonment in the forced labour camps. The certificate reproduced was issued to a Latvian citizen, deported on June 14, 1941, after he was dismissed from the Storozhevsk camp in the Komi region where he had spent 5 years of settlement to which he was condemned for insubordination. Cases of release of deportees and convicts after they had done their time are extremely rare.
