ALZHIR, abbreviated in Russian as "Akmol Labour Camp for Wives of Traitors of the Motherland" was the largest women’s camp in the Soviet Union where wives, mothers, daughters or sisters were considered as guilty as their husbands by association. In 1937-1953, Soviet forced labor camp operated to imprison more than 18,000 women, many of them were intellectuals, doctors, actresses and artists who deemed traitors.
