Perm 36 Cell Interior

Description

This color photograph of the interior of a penalty isolator (ShIzo) cell at Perm 36 illustrates the austere conditions that prisoners endured. Prisoners living in the general barracks could be sentenced to time in the penalty isolator, basically a prison within the camp, for failing to follow camp rules, refusing to work or at the whim of camp guards or administrators.
