Recommended Posts

 Hi

Following a new topic to discuss NKVD, MVD diplomas.

I begin with a diploma issued to Dmitry Pavlovich Kudriatev.

"For the selfless work during the Great Patriotic War in production to ensure the fulfillment of the state plan, the leadership of the Orotukan plant awards you with a certificate. 

Surely you will not stop at what has been accomplished and in your future work you will still have the best results and thereby make your contribution to strengthening the victorious red army.

Self-sacrificing work in the rear brings the day of complete victory to the worst enemy of humanity - German fascism. "

Hello and thank you for sharing!

Why do you think the recipient was in NKVD? I don't really see any direct indication of that.

Orotukan is situated in the Magadan in oblast.

In 1931, as geologists found gold reserves in the valleys of the Kolyma region, they built a camp on the river close to present location of Orotukan.

The settlement was founded on its present site in the mid-1930s. From 1935, a camp in the regional section of the gulag system operated by Dalstroy was located here.

That is right, but it doesn’t indicate directly, that this particular man was in NKVD service. Not only GULAG inmates lived and worked in the area, hence this man could had been a so called “freely employed”.

There is no rank. The paper itself was signed by the Head of labour union and the Head of the local Com. party organisation. I cannot quite clearly see the stamp, but doesn’t look like it supports NKVD theory either.

These are two exactly the same gramotas issued on the same date, 30 April 1945, to two people - man and wife. The man was mechanical engineer at Orutukan plant. The woman also worked at the plant. These two are exactly the same as yours, with exactly the same text. I believe, KUDRIAVTSEV was a colleague of this couple - a civilian engineer or a worker.

Thanks for these précisions :)

Following another diploma issued by the MVD of the Bashir Assr to Chumkov:

"For having achieved high performance in socialist competition, good labor discipline and exemplary behavior in 4th quarter 1957

               Result achieved  150%"

   A little question: what mean "п/я УЕ-394/1З" ?

I am glad to help!

The scan of this document is not that sharp... But it looks like the recipient is a woman - CHUMKOVA T.S.  Grammatical surname spelling implies that the recipient is a woman (ЧУМКОВУ Т.С.). If it was a man, this would read ЧУМКОВА Т.С.

п/я УЕ-394/1З

п/я - почтовый ящик - post box. This was also a notation used, when the name of organization was no used in open communication.

УЕ-394/1З - this is code for the correctional facility. Today its called ФКУ ИК №13. http://www.list-org.com/company/930716/map

It would help if the scans were sharper... :) The recipient is a man with surname CHUGUNKOV A.I. (the way you wrote the surname whould mean that was a woman). He worked as a loader, i.e. the guy whose tasks was to move heavy loads (the word "lumberjack" is stricken out and "loader" is written on top). I believe, CHUGUNKOV was indeed an inmate or former inmate in the correctional facility. The facility was located at or near settlement Sos'va in Sverdlovsk region and was mainly lumber cutting and transportation.
