I am sure Slobodan will provide details, but to my knowledge prisoners
in Stalin's Gulag did not have number tatooed. All prisoners in Nazi
concentration camps did. Whenever I have been in the Jewish club in
Copenhagen during the summer, when people wear short sleeves, I have
seen lots of such numbers on their forearms.
