Punishment Block Cell Door Peep Hole at Perm 36


Color photograph looking through the peep hole of a cell door in the punishment cell block at Perm 36. Prisoners would be sent from the regular barracks to the poorly heated, dank punishment cell block (the ShIZO or Penalty Isolator) for violations of camp discipline, failure to fulfill labor norms, or at the whims of camp guards.
