Mao Zedong inaugurated the Laogai in 1950, following the model of the Russian gulag.
While the Nazi lagers were closed in 1945 and the Soviet gulags were not used since the 1990, tha Chinese laogai are still in function.
The word LAOGAI is an abbreviation of “LAODONG GAIZAO DUI” and means “reform through labor”.
