Special exhibition "Deportation as a subject in Russia-German literature"

Forbidden! Finished. Forgotten?

More than 75 years ago, the government of the Soviet Union began to deport the Russian-German population into special settlements and labor camps. Until 1986 this minority was forbidden to talk about their story. Literature with terms such as deportation, special settlements or Labor army were not allowed to be published in the Soviet Union. Nevertheless, many authors wrote their stories, sometimes under dangerous circumstances. The texts were secretly distributed or memorized.
For the first time this literature is displayed in the Museum of Russian-German Cultural History.

The special exhibition is going to be displayed in the Museum until 2017.
