Information, history

Not far from Dolinka there is a memorial complex "Mama's Cemetery", where children and their mothers, prisoners of the Karlag, were buried in the 1930s and 1940s. The graves are located a few kilometers from the former Karlag Administration building. A monument to Ukrainians who died in the Karlag camps has been opened on the territory of the memorial complex "Mamkino Cemetery". The monument was opened on September 21, 2005. The monument was erected on the initiative of representatives of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on the territory where the Karlag camp (now the Karlag Museum) was once located. The cemetery was officially closed in the early 1960s and only in 2003 received the status of a memorial complex.
