Re: Osz or Osh Slave Labor Camp in Russia, WWII #general #yizkorbooks #russia

Osh is the name of the second-largest city in Kyrgyzstan. 

I was not able to turn up information on a WWII forced labor camp in Osh, specifically, on a quick Google search, but I wouldn't be surprised if there indeed was one there.

There is at least one documentary about the deportation of Polish Jews to forced labor camps in Central Asia: https://fontanalib.org/books/saved-deportation-unknown-odyssey-polish-jews

An anthology published a few years ago also mentions Polish Jews in Osh, though a quick look didn't seem to specifically mention a Gulag facility or other labor camp there: https://library.oapen.org/bitstream/handle/20.500.12657/30014/650080.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y
