Slavsko, Carpathian Mountains, Ukraine

Children viewing the exhumation of a mass grave in the centre of Slavsko, until 1960 the district headquarters for the NKVD/KGB in the Carpathian mountains near Lviv. The dig is conducted by Memorial, an organisation dedicated to uncovering past atrocities of the Soviet system. Some of the bodies were of Ukrainian partisans who fought against the Soviet authorities, but most were ordinary people killed by the so-called 'Red Broom'.
