M BY LEON DENNEN NEA Staff Correspondent » UNICH, Germany—(NEA)—An army of Romanian slave laborers believed to number 30,000 men and women is working on the construction of a huge Soviet naval and submarine base on the Romanian coast of the Black Sea, refugees who recently arrived in Western Germany from Romania report. Officially, the Communist government of Bucharest claims to be building a canal to link the Danube with the Black Sea. But according to eyewitness accounts it is a vast Russian war project to link too, are prisoners. Even some of the technicians who are free are forced to live under strict military discipline. The prisoners live in wooden barracks placed right in the middle of the marshes. Only removable bridges and ladders link the barracks with land. * * • • WORK IS DONE mostly in water. It begins at dawn and ends late in the evening, with only a half hour break for lunch. The diet consists mostly of fish which are caught in Lake Tessaul by special of slave laborers. The toll of lives is particularly heavy on the construction of the dam. The equipment is old and inadequate. Only German machines are used, Moscow promised the Romanian government to supply the necessary equipment for the construction of the dam but it was never delivered. Human slaves instead, must do the work of the machines. The construction was started in -August, 1950, and is believed to be near completion. Lake Tessaul with the Black Sea near Mama la, iiorth of Constanza. • * • THE ENTIRE ARE.A between Mamaia and Midea, where a dam two and a half miles in length is under construction, has been sealed off by barbed wire fences. It is closely guarded by specially picked detachments of the Romanian security police under the command of officers of the Russian M. V. D. The Kremlin apparently does not trust its Romanian satellite. Anti-aircraft guns dot the area. Hundreds of light naval patrol boats are massed along tlie Black Sea coast. No unauthorized Romanian citizen can approach within 15 miles of the fonccd-off area. Only two slave laborers are known to have escaped alive from the project. The forced laborers have been recruited almost entirely from the ranks of the Communist regime's politcial opponents. They are the so-called "enemies of the people."

This newsmap, based on a documented map prepared by Isaac Don Levlne for the Free Trade Union Committee of the American Federation of Labor shows the location of most of the known slave labor areas administered by the GULAG—the Soviet slave labor trust. Hammer and sickle symbols represent .sprawling areas served by prisoners of the GULAG, who are a vital clement in nearly every essential Russian industr.y. Excessive crowding «»f the map prevents spotting every slave labor camp which has been authenticated by sources of the Free Trade Union Committee.
