Photograph of the "wall newspaper wall" in the first section at the White Sea - Baltic Sea Canal Camp. It includes a number of propaganda elements, including a poster of the "Friends of Lice," and caricatures of idlers and "fake shockworkers." Lice were an omnipresent source of discomfort for many of the prisoners in the camps.

Two black and white photographs show prisoners reading camp newspapers, which were produced as part of the "cultural-educational" apparatus at Gulag camps.
