Visitors to the Perm-36 museum in the Urals can stroll through a well-preserved prison camp of the Gulag system established by Soviet leader Josef Stalin. But despite the authenticity of the site, the museum’s new curators are downplaying the camp’s role in the repressions of the Stalin era. (Photos by Tom Balmforth, RFE/RL)
