European Memories

of the Gulag


His mother in the camps

Ján Antal does not remember the other children in the orphanage. He was only 5 when he left it.

On his return, his mother would tell him about her work in the Gulag, first in a gold mine. After an accident, she worked in the laundry then in the kitchens, where she met his father. Then her work was less hard and her food was better.
