Posted by wlpo on August 16, 2010

An exhibit at Illinois Valley Community College takes a close look at a dark time in Russia’s history.  The Russian Gulag exhibit explains how the prisons worked as forced labor camps and as a punishment for people considered to be enemies of the state.

You can find the exhibit in the lobby of Building C.  It will be up through August 31.Books about this time period are also available at the campus library.

A professor from the University of Illinois will be on campus Monday, August 23 talking about the Gulag.
