Karaganda Faces Contrasted to Dolinka Faces of Old

Contrast the happy faces from Karaganda to those black and white photos of USSR faces from a dreary, sad time of Dolinka imprisonment in the 1930s and 1940s.  I traveled to Dolinka to witness the Museum of Memory of Political Repression Victims Measures with Damira and her father.  You will see below a photo of Damira with her father and son.  Aigerim has a bright life ahead of her, she LOVES anything to do with English and would LOVE to go to the U.S., she would flourish there.  The little Kazakh baby, he is just another cute little face at the train station in Karaganda.
