Description of museumThe Museum “Kladez’” is part of the secondary school No. 1, Iagodnyi settlement, and based on the school’s local history circle. It was set up on the initiative of Vladimir Ivanovich Karagaev, a teacher of supplementary education, and opened on 4 February 2004. Iagodnyi settlement is one of the six special labour settlements created in Kondinskii district in the 1930s. Currently there are only three left: Dal’nii, Listvennichnyi and Iagodnyi. The Museum has collected materials on the history of the settlement, such as documents, photographs, recollections of former special settlers and their personal effects (more than 400 individual pieces). More than 100 exhibits were given to the Museum by Liudmila Dmitrievna Churakova, the director of the local library. One of the supporters of the Museum is Aleksandra Pavlova Karagaeva, a former special settler. The first exhibitions were dedicated to the history of the school (the stands “70 let Iagodinskoi shkole” [“The 70the Anniversary of the School in Iagodnyi”], “Deti voiny” [“Children of the War”], “Nashi veteran” [“Our Veterans”]) and the history of the special settlements (the stands “S chego nachinaetsia Rodina” [“The Origins of Home”], “Istoriia odnoi sem’i” [“The History of One Family”]. In 1941, a children’s home that had been evacuated from besieged Leningrad was accommodated in Iagonyi school. The stand “Detskii dom No 75” [“Children’s Home No 75”] that displays letters form the wards of the children’s home has become part of the permanent exhibition. The Museum has accumulated an impressive collection of objects related to WWII; these exhibits are on show in the Museum’s Room of Battle Glory. October 2008 saw the opening of the exhibition “I zhivy pamiat’iu stoletiia” [“They Live through the Century’s Memory”], consisting of personal effects of former special settlers (photographs and documents, items of everyday use, crockery, religious literature in German and Old Church Slavonic). Of particular interest is an album with photos taken in 1912 that was given to the Museum by a former special settler, Klara Vasil’evna Goloshubina (Osintseva). A dedicated stand with the title “I v mire net istorii strashnei/ Bezumnei, chem istoriia Rossii” [“The World knows no History more Terrible/ More senseless than the History of Russia”] features the recollections of special settlers and related documents (rehabilitation certificates, inventory of confiscated property due to the owner being classified a kulak etc). In December 2005, a practical seminar for the heads of school museums was held in Iagodnyi school, which was attended by staff from the Kondinskii Local History Museum and the Polovinkinskii Ethnographic Museum, as well as representatives of the Moscow and St Petersburg branches of the “Memorial” Society. In 2006 the “Kladez’” Museum, together with the Kondinskii Local History Museum, participated in the second Museum Fieldwork Biennale in Khanty-Mansiisk “A ia razveian vetrami...” [“And I’m Gone With the Wind”] (Stalinism in the fate of individuals: Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, Romanians, Moldavians, Kalmyks and Tatars). In 2009 the Museum participated in the regional Museum Forum and Festival for the Kondinskoe region, “Ot proshlogo k budushchemu” [“From the Past to the Present”]. In May 2010 the Museum “Kladez”, together with the Museum of Nature and Man (Khanty-Mansiisk), took part in an expedition to collect exhibits and material related to the victims of political repression in the Kondinskii region. For the Fourth Museum Fieldwork Biennale (Khanty-Mansiisk, 29 November – 3 December 2010) the two museums plan a joined project on special settler families. Every year on 30 October, beginning in 2000, the museum lesson course “Bez viny vinovatye” [“Guilty without fault”] is held at the school, and the school students meet with senior residents of the special settlements. Since February 2004 the Museum has been regularly hosting meetings with special settlers and their children. The school students visit senior residents at home and gather recollections, documents and photographs. Interviews are recorded on video. In 2000, a commemorative sign for the victims of political repressions was put up on the school territory, and a meeting is held there every year on October 30. In 2006-2007, on the initiative of the Museum, commemorative signs were erected on the sites of former settlements (Malo-Novyi, Sumpaninskii, Sovlinskii). Former inhabitants of these settlements took part in the opening ceremonies of the commemorative signs. (Information correct in September 2010).
