This sub-series consists of various records documenting the Doukhobor incarceration experiences over several decades. The records relate to the Doukhobor beliefs and ideology, influence of their leaders, Doukhobor justification for the participation in unlawful activities that ultimately resulted in incarceration, as well as the hardship and suffering of the community as a whole caused by incarceration. Some documents refer to the mistreatment of the Doukhobors by the Canadian government. Many authors of the documents are women.

The records are in Russian and/or English; many are handwritten and some with accompanying transcriptions; some are original documents and some are photocopies.
