Re: Russia labor camps #russia

Arkhangelsk is not in Siberia at all.  It lies to the far north and slightly east of Moscow.  Here is Wikipedia’s description:  “Arkhangelsk, also known in English as Archangel and Archangelsk, is a city and the administrative center of Arkhangelsk Oblast, Russia. It lies on both banks of the Northern Dvina near its exit into the White Sea. The city spreads for over 40 kilometers along the banks of the river and numerous islands of its delta.“

BTW, Anne Applebaum’s book Gulag (2003) is a compendium of information about the Stalinist labor/concentration camps, but I see no mention of Dunbar in the index.  Could that word refer to Donbas, Ukraine?
