The letters that Formakov sent home in 1946 describe his contributions to cultural work in camp and his return to indoor work assignments. In this year he worked in a needle-making workshop, where he had also been delegated in 1944-1945; he later went on to serve as a bread-cutter and a norm-setter. He also toured for a time with Kraslag’s Central Cultural Brigade, giving shows in other camp outposts and area collective farms. Such privileged assignments were hard to secure. They gave inmates better access to food and significantly increased their chances of survival. At various points in the correspondence, Formakov discusses his efforts to remain in favor with the camp authorities.
