Pertominsk concentration campEdit

Pertominsk was the site of a concentration camp established by the Soviet Union in which various political rivals of the Bolsheviks were detained. This was one of the first such camps, established by the Cheka in 1919.[3] Along with the death camp set up by Mikhail Kedrov in Kholmogory it was part of the Northern Camps of Special Designation.[3]
