Gulag Collection

In  the period April 6 – May 6 2011 Embassy of Moldova to the USA will host the paintings of the Ukrainian artist Nicolai Getman from the Gulag Collection offered by The Heritage Foundation. The Collection depict the severe conditions of life of the political prisoners in the Soviet forced labor camps in 1940 and 1950.

Nicolai Getman (1917 – 2004), Gulag survivor, dedicated his Collection to the memory of those who survived the Gulag and those who did not. After eight years of forced labor in Syberia and Kolyma, Getman tried to put his vision of that cruel period on canvas and hoped this part of history will never be forgotten.

The official opening will take place on April 11, 2011, at 3 p.m., Mr. Lee Edward, Chairman of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation will make a brief presentation of the Collection.
