Black and white photograph of prisoner's barracks. Propaganda slogans, including pictures of Ordzhonokidze, Stalin and Marx dominate the far wall. Beds line the right wall, and a stove can be seen on the left. A woman leans against a table. On one of the bunks is the prisoner's cold-weather clothes.
