AmurLag: Rosyjski obóz koncentracyjny niewolniczej pracy przymusowej w ramach systemu Gułag, funkcjonujący w latach 1938‑1941 w okr. amurskim. Stworzony po rozwiązaniu obozu BamŁag. Centrum w miejscowości Swobodna. Więźniowie niewolniczo pracowali przy budowie linii kolejowych. W szczycie przetrzymywano w nim 125,000 osób.

BamLag: Russian concentration camp for slave labor within the Gulag system, organized in 1932 by the criminal organization OGPU, and then managed by the genocidal Russian NKVD organization. The prisoners slaved at the construction of the railway on the section between Lake Baikal and the Amur River (Baikal–Amur line), at laying the second tracks of the Trans–Siberian line (in particular the lines called Trans–Baikal and Ussuri), as well as at felling forests, processing wood and in mines. In the years 1932‑1935, the slave labor of about 1,000,000 prisoners was used there (according to other sources, 201,000 prisoners were held in the camp at its peak). The center was located in the city of Svobodny (today in the Amur region). In the years 1934‑1938, the director of BamLag was Naftali Frenkel, of Jewish descent, considered to be the creator of the system of using slave labor within the Gulag, which he created during his earlier work on the White Sea Canal. The camp was dissolved in 05.1938, and on its basis — in accordance with the proposal of the aforementioned N. Frenkel ‑ 6 smaller camps were created, including AmurLag.

Gulag: The acronym Gulag comes from the Rus. Главное управление исправительно–трудовых лагерей и колоний (Eng. Main Board of Correctional Labor Camps). The network of Russian concentration camps for slave labor was formally established by the decision of the highest Russian authorities on 27.06.1929. Control was taken over by the OGPU, the predecessor of the genocidal NKVD (from 1934) and the MGB (from 1946). Individual gulags (camps) were often established in remote, sparsely populated areas, where industrial or transport facilities important for the Russian state were built. They were modeled on the first „great construction of communism”, the White Sea–Baltic Canal (1931‑1932), and Naftali Frenkel, of Jewish origin, is considered the creator of the system of using forced slave labor within the Gulag. Up to 12 mln prisoners were held there at one time, i.e. c. 5% of Russia's population. In his book „The Gulag Archipelago”, Alexander Solzhenitsyn estimated that c. 60 mln people were killed in the Gulag until 1956. Formally dissolved on 20.01.1960.

Great Purge 1937: In the summer of 1937 Polish Catholic priests held in Solovetsky Islands, Anzer Island and BelBaltLag were locked in prison cells (some in Sankt Petersburg). Next in a few kangaroo, murderous Russian trials (on 09.10.1937, 25.11.1937, among others) run by so‑called «NKVD Troika» all were sentenced to death. They were subsequently executed by a single shot to the back of the head. The murders took place either in Sankt Petersburg prison or directly in places of mass murder, e.g. Sandarmokh or Levashov Wilderness, where their bodies were dumped into the ditches. Other priests were arrested in the places they still ministered in and next murdered in local NKVD headquarters (e.g. in Minsk in Belarus), after equally genocidal trials run by aforementioned «NKVD Troika» kangaroo courts.
