The cemetery of prisoners from the 4th division of Dallag [1929-1939] in Komsomolsk-on-Amur is located on the outskirts of the town, in an area now occupied by Dalstalkonstruktsiya Ltd, at the intersection of Gagarin Street and Komsomol Avenue. Between March 1933 and the end of 1938 prisoners who died in the camp hospital were buried there. The numbers have not been established; there are no lists of names.

In 1968-1969, human remains were uncovered during the erection of various buildings of the Far Eastern Steel Construction company (ZAO Dalstalkonstruktsiya). They were reinterred at an unknown location. Subsequently a branch of the railway was laid across the former cemetery and warehouses were built on part of the area.

The commemorative site is included in the “Topography of Terror: Komsomolsk-on-Amur” educational excursion.
