«This picture was taken when I was already released from the camps into Exile, but the jacket and the numbers are real, and the methods used are also closely re-enacted. All the time while in Ekibastuz [Special Camp], my number was «Щ-232» and then later changed to «Щ-262″ in the last months. The numbers I sneaked out of Ekibastuz and I keep it to this day.»
