Macikai House of Death. The WWII prisoner of war and Gulag camps 1939–1955 in the environs of Šilutė
Macikai was first the site of the POW camp of Nazi Germany (1941–1944), then the POW camp of the Soviet Union (1945–1948) and the Gulag labour camp (1945–1955). Based on archival documents in this study historians explore the operation of these camps: who was held in the camps, what the living conditions of the prisoners were, their work, medical care, etc. The archaeological survey of the area and findings are also described.
