In the 1930s, those who died or were shot in Ivanovo Prison were buried without grave markers in the city’s Burylinskoe (Novouspenskoe) cemetery. It was located in the Mineyevo settlement and came into existence in the late 19th century.

Today the cemetery is no more and the Kraneks company occupies the site. Only one section of burials survives, the memorial cemetery of Old Communists (26 gravestones). In 1989, this site was identified as one place where victims of political repression were buried, thanks to work by a joint commission of the Ivanovo Region executive committee and the region’s FSB.

Books of Remembrance

A Book of Remembrance: Russian Federation, Ivanovo Region (one vol. 1997) provides minimal information on 11,000 people who were “repressed” under the Soviet regime. To judge by the Memorial database online neither the date of their arrest nor the nature of the repressive measures taken against them are indicated.
