The exhibition presents the historical background of the era on posters with pictures and shows films including documentaries on the Gulag prisons, Csaba Pécsi, the designer, said. It will travel after March 15 to locations where the deportations began.
An estimated 200,000-230,000 civilians were taken into forced labour camps for malenkiy robot -- “a little work” -- from the territory of what is today’s Hungary.
They included 150,000- 170,000 male war prisoners, and 50,000 men and women internees with an ethnic German background.
Up to 40% of the prisoners died in the camps and many of them are buried in unmarked graves.
