Gulag Study Support Documents Database

The Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office, Joint Commission Support Directorate researchers have combed U.S. diplomatic and military archives to collect as many contemporaneous reports of American servicemen in the Soviet Gulag as possible. These include numerous accounts of U.S. POWs reportedly shipped into the former Soviet Union as well as reported sightings of missing servicemen observed at specific prison camps and other former Soviet detention facilities.

The documents contained in the Gulag Study Support Document Database are a compilation of these declassified U.S. government documents that provide DPMO/JCSD researchers with key information to support and focus their on-the-ground research in the States of the former Soviet Union. The database contains 55 documents, currently dated from 1947 to 1960. New documents are added as they are received and processed.
