The Kolyma region (pronounced kah-ly-MAH) is located in the far north-eastern area of Siberia. The people of the Soviet Union feared Kolyma more than any other region of the Gulag Empire. “Kolyma znaczit smert” was the common phrase whispered at the time, and translates, without loss, to “Kolyma means death.”
