Sukhanovo. Russia. 1956

Manor. Sukhanovo. Russia.
Suhhanovo mõis.
Суханово. Усадьба.

Postcard, 1956.
My collection.

* Near this very nice manor-house was situated Sukhanovka, 'Sukhanovo special-regime prison,' - a prison established by the NKVD in 1938 (since 1958) for "particularly dangerous enemies of the people" on the grounds of the old Ekaterinskaia Pustyn' Monastery.  It was said to be worse than the Lubyanka, Lefortovo, or Butyrka prisons in Moscow itself.  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn called it "the most terrible prison the MGB had."

* Kultuuriajalooliselt olulise Suhhanovo mõisahoone lähedal kloostri territooriumil oli aastatel 1938-1958 stalinliku režiimi erivangla, mida kirjanik Aleksandr Solženitsõn on nimetanud NKVD kõige kohutavamaks vanglaks.

* Усадьба Суханово - архитектурно-художественный ансамбль конца XVIII века. Рядом с усадьбой на территории монастыря Свято-Екатерининская пустынь находился Сухановка (Сухановская особорежимная тюрьма, Спецобъект № 110) - тюрьма сталинского времени (1938-1958).
