A barbed wire fence at the Buturichak camp. The Buturichak camp was one of the worst camp in Kolyma. At the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s people learned about the camp as a place where uranium was mined. There were more then 7.5 thousand prisoners between 1937 and 1950. Prisoners didn't have any idea of what they are dealing with.
