Trip to Alzhir Museum-Memorial Complex to the Victims of Political Repression and Totalitarianism (07/10/2019)
The IGS team was honoured to have had the opportunity to visit the Alzhir Memorial just outside Nur-Sultan. Alzhir is an acroynm for the camp that held wives of the 'traitors to the motherland'. Very little remains of the camp itself but the museum commemorates the camp and the lives and experiences of the women who suffered there.
