Physical Description: (215 reels)

Scope Note

This finding aid has been prepared for 215 microfilm reels of Fond R-1005. It contains 4,111 files of documents relating to the activities of the USSR Procurator's Office, 1919-1921
Revolutionary tribunals were established during the October Revolution and Civil War by the USSR Sovnarkom Decree on Courts of November 22 (December 5) 1917, as special courts designated to fight counterrevolutionary and other crimes deemed extraordinarily dangerous.
Cases dealing with general crime, first under the jurisdiction of revolutionary tribunals, were removed from them by the RSFSR Sovnarkom Decree of May 4, 1918, and transferred to the newly established local people's courts at the okrug level. Revolutionary tribunals concentrated on cases related to the struggle against counterrevolution, sabotage, plunder, pogroms, bribery, profiteering, and desertion. The Revolutionary Tribunal under the VTsIK was established by a VTsIK Decree of May 29(16), 1918, and was charged with investigation of the most important court cases. The Revolutionary Tribunal became the Supreme Revolutionary Tribunal under the VTsIK on April 12, 1919; and from June 23, 1921, it was the Supreme Tribunal under the VTsIK, uniting the activities of all tribunals on RSFSR territory. The Revolutionary Tribunal consisted of appeal, military, and military transport collegiums. During the Civil War revolutionary military tribunals operated in the army and were headed by the Revolutionary Military Tribunal attached to the Revolutionary Military Council (Revvoensovet) of the Republic. The statute on revolutionary military tribunals was approved by the Revvoensovet on February 4, 1919. All political and military crimes and those of officials that took place in the army were under the jurisdiction of the tribunals. In the beginning of 1920 revolutionary military tribunals were established for railways, other modes of transport, and internal security troops.
A VTsIK resolution of 31 October 1922, established the RSFSR Supreme Court and transferred the tribunal's functions to it, thus abolishing the system of tribunals. However, revolutionary military tribunals were preserved in the army, and after that time they were called military tribunals.
The RSFSR Supreme Court was in charge of all judicial institutions; it investigated appeals against decisions of courts in guberniias and decisions adopted by various courts of the republic. It also tried cases of the utmost importance as a court of primary jurisdiction.
For the Hoover Institution microfilm project 4,194 files out of 5,040 from eight opisi out of nine were microfilmed. It should be noted that only selected files were microfilmed from opis 1A containing files tried by the RSFSR Supreme Court.
This fond includes circulars of the Supreme Tribunal under the VTsIK and of the RSFSR Supreme Court, protocols of court sessions, and documents relating to the activities and reorganization of revolutionary tribunals. The register of court cases tried by the Revolutionary Tribunal and Supreme Tribunal under the VTsIK and by the USSR Supreme Court in 1918-1940 were also preserved in this fond.
Fond R-1005 contains correspondence with the VTsIK Presidium regarding suspension of death sentences or commutation of other penalties for death sentences, documents relating to the activities of revolutionary tribunals including a circular letter from the Revolutionary Tribunal of the Republic, Regulations for Revolutionary Military Tribunals in the Army, lists of revolutionary military tribunals for fronts, armies, and military okrugs, with reports about their activities and reorganization, and about the operation of their special local sessions; and data regarding revision of the activities of revolutionary military tribunals for railways.
Also included in the fond are documents relating to appeals from individuals convicted by revolutionary tribunals in guberniias of various crimes. They were arranged by year or type of crime. Within groups of documents by type of crimes documents are in alphabetical order arranged by name of appellants.
Only selected files from court cases tried by the Supreme Court (opis 1A) were included in the microfilm collection. They relate to the conviction of different individuals of political crimes such as cooperation with police institutions before the revolution and anti-Soviet and counterrevolutionary activities. It should be noted that upon a closer study of these cases it becomes apparent that minor offenses committed in everyday life and by officials were often classified as "anti-Soviet activities."

Fond R-4042, Main Directorate of Places of Confinement of the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs of the RSFSR, 1922-1930.

Physical Description: (333 reels)

Scope Note

This finding aid has been prepared for 333 microfilm reels of Fond R-4042. It contains 1,847 files of documents relating to the activities of the USSR Procurator's Office, 1919-1921
Upon establishment of the Soviet power the system of penal institutions was governed by the People's Commissariat of Justice, which included the Main Directorate of Places of Confinement. When the Civil War broke out, along with the system of places of confinement there appeared a system of forced labor camps. Some forced labor camps reported to the VChK, others were governed by the Main Directorate of Forced Labor of the USSR NKVD. It was created on April 15, 1919, as a Central Directorate of Forced Labor Camps; then from May 17, 1919, through May 18, 1920, as a Department of Forced Labor; from May through September 1920 and from February 1921 through October 1922 it became the Main Administration of Forced Labor; and from September 1920 through February 1921 it was the Main Directorate of Public Works and Duties. Officially there existed five types of camps: special camps, general concentration camps, production camps, camps for POWS, and placement camps.
It was supposed that class enemies would be sent to the VChK and NKVD camps, while working people convicted of various crimes would be sent to places of confinement. In practice working people were sent to camps, and the so-called "non-labor elements" were sent to places of confinement. According to a report of the Main Directorate of Forced Labor, 28.5% of inmates were convicted of criminal offences in the second half of 1921, while 18.2% of inmates were convicted of anti-public crimes, like heavy drinking, prostitution, or vagrancy.
A resolution of the RSFSR Sovnarkom of July 25, 1922, required that management of all places of confinement be concentrated in one organization, the NKVD. In response to the resolutions the Central Correctional Labor Department of the People's Commissariat of Justice and its local divisions were reorganized into the main and local directorates of places of confinement under the NKVD and NKVD divisions in guberniias. The Main Directorate of Forced Labor of the NKVD and its local divisions were abolished.
The Main Directorate of Places of Confinement was responsible for the following:
1. To supervise execution of sentences by depriving convicts of freedom or sending them to forced labor camps;
2. To govern all places of confinement;
3. To convey basics of penal policy by applying necessary measures to convicts, like isolation or educational correctional labor in places of confinement established by them;
4. To establish a forced labor system without holding laborers in custody;
5. To participate in designing measures fighting child crime and governing the places of confinement for underage criminals.
Places of confinement were defined by type: 1) detention centers for those under investigation or sentenced to a term up to six months; 2) correctional labor centers for those sentenced to a term longer than six months; 3) agricultural, vocational, and factory labor colonies for first time offenders without inclination to escape; 4) special isolation cells for those sentenced to a strict isolation imprisonment; 5) transitional correctional labor centers for inmates who, upon serving a part of their term, were allowed by a placement commission to serve further under a "half free" regime. Centers for underage offenders also existed. There were separate labor camps for workers and peasant youth offenders, as well as medical institution for social protection.
The Main Directorate of Places of Confinement consisted of the Secretariat; the Administrative-Penal Department including Placement Subdepartment, Administrative Subdepartment, Subdepartment of Culture and Education, and Subdepartment of Registration and Statistics; the Department of Labor and Operation of GUMZ Enterprises including the Technological, Agricultural, and Operational Subdepartments; the Department of Economy and Supplies including Procurement Subdepartment and Subdepartment of Accounting and Financing; and the Convoy Guards of the Republic. GUMZ personnel consisted of 113 people. In 1924 GUMZ personnel were reduced to 66 people working for the following GUMZ departments: the Secretariat; the Division of Stocktaking and Registration; the Administrative Penal Department; the Inspectorate of Convoy Guards; the Bureau of Forced Labor; the Placement Commission, the Department of Labor and Operation; and the Department of Economy and Procurement.
The local divisions managing correctional labor institutions and inspections of places of confinement in guberniias, reported to both the administrative departments of executive committees in guberniias and to the GUMZ. However, in 1927 the inspectorates of places of confinement were abolished, thus transferring management of places of confinement directly to the GUMZ. For general management and political control on a local level, departments of places of confinement were established within NKVD administrative directorates/departments in guberniias/oblasts. By the July 11, 1929, Sovnarkom resolution On the Use of Labor of Criminal Offenders, those sentenced to three or more years of imprisonment were sent to correctional labor camps that were being established by the OGPU. These camps were planned to become centers for development of distant areas. The NKVD Directorates of the union republics retained the authority over places of confinement for those sentenced to imprisonment for less than three years, defendants under trial, and over transit centers. The Main Directorate for Places of Confinement was abolished along with the system of NKVD institutions in December 1930.
At the head of the Main Directorate of Places of Confinement throughout its existence was E. G. Shirvindt.
Fond R-4042 consists of 5,253 files, including 735 files relating to the GUMZ personnel. All documents from this fond became fully available for researchers in the early 1990s. Of all files, 1,847 files from opisi 1, 1A, 2-7, 9-11, and 13 were microfilmed for the Hoover project (approximately 35 % of the whole collection).
Documents from this fond reveal how in the 1920s the administrative commanding system, Soviet penal system, and finally the Stalin Gulag were established, as they show the creation of camps, colonies, and wide use of inmates' labor in industry, on construction sites, and in agriculture, for example at the Volgo-Kaspiĭ-Forest logging areas, at the construction of the Turkestan-Siberian Railway, etc.
For the microfilming project materials of the Secretariat, Administrative Penal Department, Departments of Finance, of Culture and Education, of Forced Labor, of Economy and Supply, the GUMZ Placement Commission, the Moscow Directorate of Forced Labor and of the NKVD Moscow Division, as well as the documents of the Board of the United Cluster Enterprises of Forced Labor were selected.
The Fond of the Main Directorate of Places of Confinement was placed in the Central Archives of the October Revolution in 1933; at that time it consisted of 72,224 files. We see that materials of the GUMZ have not been preserved in full. Along with materials of many other institutions in the early years of the Soviet power, documents of the GUMZ suffered from waste paper gathering campaigns and multiple weedings in 1941, 1956-1957, 1959, 1975, 1982, and 1984. The majority of documents designated for destruction consisted of inmates' personal files.
However, preserved materials still make a great source of information highlighting a comprehensive picture of the activities of the GUMZ and its subordinates, and the role and place of the GUMZ in the NKVD and in the punitive system of the 1920s. Some documents are original, some copies. Documents from the Department of Forced Labor, Cultural and Educational Department, and the Secretariat were best preserved. At the same time only four files were preserved from the Finance Department: The main ledgers of the GUMZ for 1924-1928 and three files with orders and instructions of the RSFSR NKVD regarding the number of administrative units in the USSR in 1924-1925 were preserved among the materials of the Bureau of Forced Labor of the RSFSR NKVD. Materials of the Division of Registration and Recording and the Inspectorate of Convoy Guards were lost.

The Soviet penal system operated under the immediate supervision of the USSR Council of People's Commissars/Council of Ministers. Materials of these organizations comprise Fond R-5446. Some 1278 selected files from 47 opisi were microfilmed for the Soviet Communist Party and Soviet State microfilm collection. Of these 725 files from the opisi marked with the letter A became available for researchers only in the 1990s.
Most of the selected documents are files of the Administration of Affairs of the USSR Sovnarkom/Sovmin. They relate to the activities of the OGPU, USSR NKVD/MVD, and their local organizations. They mainly consist of correspondence and other materials of the TsK VKP(b), USSR Procurator's Office, USSR Supreme Court, people's commissariats, and other institutions. The documents reflect the process of developing governmental resolutions and directives that would further define the structure and operation of those organizations and institutions, their financing, and logistic supplies rendered to them. This collection includes documents about the establishment of the special Solovetskiĭ forced labor camp, appropriation of money for establishment and maintenance of camps and colonies, financing and functioning of the OGPU and its local organs, the structure and operation of the Gulag and its multiple projects, establishment of labor settlements, and selection of areas in the USSR that could be used as exile sites. A group of records in the fond concerns wages of personnel in camps, colonies and prisons, appointment of executive officers to head the OGPU/NKVD/MVD, etc. Included also are appeals and petitions from prisoners and/or their relatives. The microfilm collection also include documents relating to changes or amendments to the Statute of the Supreme Court of the USSR, approval of personnel organization of the Supreme Court and its local divisions, increase in wages of the chair and members of the Supreme Court special collegium, and development of the final draft of the USSR Criminal Code. Of special interest are files from the Secretariat of A. Ya. Vyshinskiĭ, Deputy Chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers, for 1939-1940 ( opis 81A). They contain Vyshinskiĭ's correspondence with various institutions relating to the activities of the USSR Procurator's Office, courts, and cultural and educational institutions and to other issues he handled as the Deputy Chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers, a deputy of the USSR Supreme Soviet and a member of a number of commissions.
This finding aid is arranged by original file number (second row of each entry), with reference to the corresponding microfilm reel number (first row). The description of a group of files is listed under the first file in numerical order. Names of republics are spelled in compliance with the Library of Congress Authority File. Names of administrative-territorial units of the USSR (raĭon, oblast, kraĭ) are transliterated from Russian. The Russian abbreviations for party/state organs and institutions are used. They are decoded in the glossary. The Russian finding aid can be found on reels 3.49-3.59.
