GULAG - A Documentary on Stalinist Labor Camps, Part 3

This clip is from GULAG, a documentary by Angus Macqueen which tells the story of Soviet forced-labor camps, and their prisoners, during the Stalinist age.  People from many countries, not just Russia, "worked like oxes." 

In this segment, we learn what happens to individuals deprived of necessary dietary proteins (such as GULAG laborers who were fed bread instead of balanced diets).  Even though many people developed Pellagra, they were still forced to work.

Today, survivors of the camps compulsively buy bread - even when their families don't need it - because the fear of starving again has never left them.
