Guard Attacks Prisoner


Color sketch from Evfrosiniia Kersnovskaia's self-illustrated memoirs of camp guard beating her. In the accompanying text, Kersnovskaia recalls how guards took her through the camp's zone to the office of the camp chief. She resisted and one of the guards beat her. She lost consciousness for a moment and when she got up she was told to be present at the camp warden's office.
