Nikolai Getman was imprisoned in camps in the Magadan area from 1946 to 1954.
Nikolai Getman Paintings Catalogue

Today there's a railroad there, that was built by camp convicts, and a monument was raised to honour those who died building the railroad. Keep in mind that among these prisoners were hardened criminals and killers, with whom were mixed the political prisoners, who were teachers, intellectuals, writers, aristocrats, students in their early 20's, doctors, etc.

And if this hasn't succeded in completely depressing you, read the book "Magadan" by Michael Solomon.
