Katorga - definition of Katorga in Encyclopedia (398 words)
Katorga began in the 17th century, and was taken over by the Bolsheviks after the Russian Revolution, eventually transforming into the Gulag.
Unlike concentration camps, "katorga" was within the normal judicial system of (Imperial) Russia, but both share the same main features: confinement, simplified facilities (as opposed to prisons), and forced labor, usually on hard, unskilled or semi-skilled work.
Katorgas were established in underpopulated areas of Siberia and the Russian Far East that had few towns or food sources.
